Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this place a good overall grade, we did give it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's better category grades was in the category of long-term care. This proved to be its second best category. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 97.971016 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable percentage. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Sadly, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care rating, which is not a very good score. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is more often than not a meaningful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
Turning to the next area, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. The nursing score consists of many factors, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
