Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care grade turns out to be one of its higher grades. The nursing home received a B- in this area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most important for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, this facility was given just a D in that area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.59514 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The last area we assessed was nursing, where this nursing home was given a poor grade in this area as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
