Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. This score is much better than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving patients more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home received just a D in that area. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.6 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home received a poor score in this area as well. We gave it an F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. We were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 22.37443 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
