Short-term Care Quality
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable short-term care score. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this area, which was much better than its overall score. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
We actually gave this nursing home a very solid grade in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- in this category. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's next highest category was long-term care. However, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. For residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The last category we analyzed was nursing, which ended up being a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for the area of nursing. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few components, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
