Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this area, which is much better than its overall score. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. The nursing grade is based on quite a few datapoints, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
The third highest category we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Our short-term care scores are presumably more meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is long-term care, where this facility received an abysmal score in this category as well. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 93.40659 percent of its residents, which is a few points less than we anticipated. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
