Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it earned a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. It received a decent score in this area with a B-. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
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 focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best area was its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Short-term care grades are typically employed to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed 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 patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of B-. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 75.39683 percent of its patients. This is several points below what we were hoping for. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
