Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. Our inspection ratings are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent score in the category of short-term care, with a C. Short-term care scores are crucial for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 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
The final category we looked at was long-term care, in which this facility received a poor grade here as well. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is definitely very concerning. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 67.51269 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points below average. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
