Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest category was its short-term care score, where it received a C. In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The next highest category we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 96.969696 percent of its residents. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The final category we rated is nursing, which was a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a grade of just D in our nursing category. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
