Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Our inspection scores are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
We also awarded this facility a grade of C for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed is long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. In determining these long-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
