Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong score in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home a better than average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics.

Next we looked at nursing grades, where this nursing home received an F, which is a rock bottom grade. This area was definitely not a strength for this facility. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest category is short-term care, which is the final category we scored. We gave it an abysmal F in this area. Even with several respectable grades in other categories, this grade is nevertheless alarming so we wanted to make a note of it. Short-term care grades are generally employed to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we weren't surprised to find this nursing home was below average in many staffing figures we focus on. The nursing home supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.9 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
