Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this facility well overall, we would like to point out its decent government inspections in recent years. We gave it a relatively respectable score of B- in that category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. We are also concerned by the fact that this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B-. Our nursing rating considers several subcategories. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a solid score in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is long-term care, turned out to be this facility's worst category. We awarded this facility a D in that area. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the vaccine to only 85.333336 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
