Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care grade appears to be one of its best scores. The facility received a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 98.96373 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
