Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A- for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than its overall rating. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care rating ended up being one of its more favorable scores. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this area. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this nursing home 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. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final area, we awarded this nursing home a D in long-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category grade. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
