Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually received a slightly more favorable score in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that area, which is not bad. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category is its long-term care grade, where it received a grade of B-. In the category of long-term care, we assess the amount of care offered by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home provided the vaccine to just 88.46154 percent of its residents, which is slightly concerning. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. When determining our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at was short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this category. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
