Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded it a somewhat respectable grade of B- in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. 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. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an B-. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third best category came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 6.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is long-term care. This facility received a grade of B- for the area. In determining these long-term care ratings, we look at the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this facility provided the vaccine to just 83.53909 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
