Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we gave it a B for our inspections category. This is due to the facility receiving a decent inspection report this year. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't rate terribly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a C in that area, which turned out to be among its more favorable scores. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 89.18919 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than what we were hoping for. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Our objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Considering its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at.

We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
