Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. This grade is better than the facility's overall rating. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The next most favorable category we gave this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care grades are presumably more important for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this area. Long-term care grades assess a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.70588 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Looking to our final category of inspections, we gave this facility a score of just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection rating is based on the facility's inspections. Since this information is collected by independent government inspectors, we place a great deal of weight on it in our overall grades. Our inspection grades weigh many items on the facility's recent inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
