Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Inspection scores are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is well below average. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its next best category grade in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this area, which is a decent grade. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed was long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that area. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
