Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that had too many deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable grades. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.62406 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was short-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in this area. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.2 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
