Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this place a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a B+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's more favorable category scores came in the category of short-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

This facility vaccinated 99.67949 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes.

Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we looked at was nursing, turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. The nursing category weighs many subcategories, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing.
