Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this nursing home a bad overall grade, we actually awarded it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. 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.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B-. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third best area was its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are critical for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area. Long-term care scores are essential for individuals requiring personal care. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
