Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which is much better than its overall grade. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While 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 the end of the world.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is well below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable area was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. In crafting our long-term care scores, we look at the facility's personal care services. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 99.376945 percent of its residents, which is an above average total. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category was short-term care, which is the final area we scored. For this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. Our short-term care grade is often used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. With its poor score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn this nursing home offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
