Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which is much better than its overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. This proved to be its second most respectable category. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Short-term care grades are often employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's third highest category is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat poorly. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this facility gave the vaccine to just 90.7489 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
The last category we looked at was nursing, turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. There are numerous subcategories within this grade. Most of the data points are tied to staffing levels. This particular facility offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This number is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
