Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this place a good overall score, we actually gave it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are mostly based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
The third best area we gave this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 82.790695 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be several points below the national average. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
