Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this facility well overall, we wanted to point out its decent health inspection reports in recent years. We gave it a relatively respectable score of B- in this area. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is far below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care scores are important for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was long-term care. For that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's personal care instead of the skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After considering the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 97.93388 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
