Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this place a bad overall rating, we actually gave it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where it received a B-. This was better than its other category grades. Inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none 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 awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. The nursing rating features a number of factors. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given its third best category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most critical for folks requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was long-term care. This nursing home was given a grade of B- in this category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 90.54054 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is several points lower than what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
