Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this nursing home a poor overall score, we gave it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was better than its other categories. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. 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.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B-. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 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.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next category, this facility received a grade of B- for long-term care, which we consider to be a respectable rating. In the area of long-term care, we analyze the amount of services offered by a facility, as opposed to more sophisticated services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.28647 percent of its residents. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
