Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall score. Inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing scores are primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second lowest category is long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a well below average score. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 33.7535 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly lower than what we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this category. Our short-term care grades are probably more meaningful for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
