Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this place a poor overall grade, we gave it a grade of B for our inspections rating. This was due to the facility receiving a decent government inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
This facility excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned a grade of C. Few facilities performed better in this area. Nursing grades are primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only earned a D for its long-term care grade, which is well below average in this category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home provided the vaccine to a relatively low 46.59686 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth area, this nursing home did not fare very well here either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is frequently a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.4 percent of its patients returning home.
