Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a respectable score in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our long-term care ratings are more important for those needing more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. With a grade in this range for this category, we were not shocked to discover that this place was well below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
Moving on to our final area, this nursing home didn't perform very well in this area either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing rating includes several subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
