Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B- for our inspections rating. This grade is more respectable than this place's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing scores are primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared to most facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Turning to the next area, this facility was awarded a B- in long-term care, which is a respectable grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.55073 percent of its patients. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
