Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall score, it did receive a somewhat respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent score in that area with a B-. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given its third highest category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this area, which is a respectable score. Our short-term care grades are vital for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the last category, this nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in long-term care, which we consider to be a respectable grade. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.3871 percent of its patients. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
