Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality

When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids.

This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second lowest score is short-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
This facility's weakest area is nursing, which is the final category we assessed. It received an abysmal F in this area. Even with multiple acceptable scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we wanted to draw your attention to it.

This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
