Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not have many positive things to say about this facility's overall score, it earned a somewhat respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent score in this category with a B-. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most facilities.

Long-term Care Quality
The next highest category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more sophisticated services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 94.88055 percent of its residents. Lastly, 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 figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final category, we gave this facility a D for short-term care. This is the facility's weakest category rating. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
