Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third highest area turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are vital for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 63.56589 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
