Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received a very favorable inspection score. In this category, we gave this facility a B+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we also would like to note that this facility was awarded impressive short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in that category, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area is long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.7013 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The next area we assessed is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area, which is a poor grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
