Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this place a weak overall score, we awarded it a somewhat respectable grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B-. This was better than its other category grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing score is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Our final area is long-term care, where we awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 95.38461 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
