To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this facility an A for its inspection grade. This is far more impressive than its overall grade. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest area ended up being long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. In computing our long-term care ratings, we look at the personal care received by the facility's patients. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 95.26066 percent of its residents. Unfortunately, its hospitalization rate was less favorable.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score. This is not a very good score. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Given its poor grade, we were not shocked to find that this nursing home provided substantially fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well in this area. In fact, we found that just 44 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
This facility's worst area was nursing, which is the final category we assessed. It received a lowly F in this area. Even with multiple solid grades in other areas, this score is still concerning so we felt obligated to make a note of it. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This place offered a meager 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. On top of receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this place was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and found that this nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many pressure ulcers are preventable with better nursing care. This statistic really pulled down this facility's nursing rating significantly.
