Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this place still had a relatively favorable report.
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 grade is largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a solid grade in the category of short-term care, with a grade of C. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech 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 measures we assessed. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 93.396225 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we expected but still a decent percentage. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
