Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we want to point out its decent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave it a somewhat respectable grade of B- in this category. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. 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.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality
The third most favorable area we gave this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most important for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this area. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 95.550064 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
