Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our better. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest category is long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the vaccine to a relatively low 83.21429 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
Turning to our next area, this nursing home really didn't perform well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this was its weakest area. There are a variety of criteria included in this grade. Many of the factors are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
