Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B- for inspections. This grade is more respectable than this place's overall grade. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing grade is largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next best category was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road score in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was long-term care, proved to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this area. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 90.90909 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we expected but still a decent figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home 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 average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
