Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for inspections. This grade is better than this place's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 11 deficiencies on its inspection report. In addition to having severe deficiencies, 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.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent score in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B- in this area. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.31933 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The last area we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this facility a grade of C in this area. When determining our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provides only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
