Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. This grade is more respectable than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing scores are primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was short-term care, where this facility received a B- in this category. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at 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 residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
