Registered Staff Hours
Although this place's overall score was not a highlight, it did receive a very good score in the area of inspections. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing score is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility received its next highest category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this area, which is a respectable grade. With our short-term care category, we attempt to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was long-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in this category. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 92.46231 percent of its residents. This is a bit below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
