Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of A+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection scores are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its next best category grade in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable score. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. We gave this nursing home a score of D. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was long-term care, which is a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a D in long-term care. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 80.54054 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
