Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. This grade is more respectable than the facility's overall score. Our inspection scores are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category ended up being its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was long-term care. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In determining our long-term care ratings, we assess the personal care received by a nursing home's residents. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 91.3371 percent of its patients, which is somewhat lower than we anticipated. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
