Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for its inspection grade. This is far better than the facility's overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
This nursing home received high scores in our nursing category as well. In fact, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an C. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest category ended up being its long-term care score, where it was awarded a C. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's personal care instead of the highly skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 94.680855 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded is short-term care, which was this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a D in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Based on its poor rating in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
