Short-term Care Quality
While we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable short-term care grade. We gave it a B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This score is generally a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Another strength for this nursing home is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an B+. Inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care score. This is not a very good score. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated just 68.72038 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home didn't fare well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the amount of time nurses are with residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
