Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a middle of the pack grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a C. Long-term care scores are based on a facility's amount of nursing services. This includes a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care grade. This is not a very good score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
The next category we looked at was nursing, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal score in this area as well. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this category. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
