Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score is not a highlight, it received a somewhat respectable score in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
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 primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. In calculating these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 3.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth category, this facility did not perform well in this area either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96.90722 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
