Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave it a relatively respectable score of B- in this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing score is mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B- in this area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is more often than not a useful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our next category, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of B-. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 88 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be several points lower than average. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
