Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this place a good overall score, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
The next most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. For long-term care residents, 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 considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 92.92929 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. Short-term care scores are crucial for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
