Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we want to note its decent inspections in recent years. We gave it a relatively respectable score of B- in that category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. It doesn't appear that we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
The third most favorable category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care scores are arguably more critical for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of care. This means a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After considering the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
