Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid inspections in recent years. We gave it a B in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category ended up being its long-term care score, where it received a B-. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 30.769232 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B- in this category. Short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
The final category we assessed is nursing, is this facility's weakest area. We awarded this facility a D in this category. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
