Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall score, it did receive a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that area with a B-. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
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. Nursing grades are largely based on the facility's level of 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, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this place 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 important question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is a fair grade in this area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
