Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second best category was its long-term care score, where it received a C. Long-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's amount of nursing services. This means a vast range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. We looked at the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was short-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more critical for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
