Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this place a weak overall grade, we awarded it a fairly respectable grade in the category of inspections, where it received a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. 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.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility received its next most favorable category grade in the area of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. Our long-term care grade is typically used to assess a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is short-term care. This nursing home was given a C in the area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage 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.
