Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually received a somewhat respectable grade in the category of inspections. We awarded it a grade of B- for this category, which is not bad. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B-. Nursing grades are mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. According to its CMS reports, this facility provided an average of 4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Approximately one fourth of this care came from registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. Both of these figures are higher than average. Finally, our nursing scores also include quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed better than average in this area.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of B-. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is generally a fair assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. This place excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than the typical nursing home. This is certainly an excellent sign. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. It fared well with 65.9 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is long-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in that category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility gave the vaccine to 97.32143 percent of its patients, which is a very solid statistic. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.46 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
