Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we actually gave it a very strong grade in nursing, where it received a B. Our nursing rating features a host of factors. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
We awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our inspections rating. This score is more respectable than the facility's overall grade. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its third best category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this area, which is a decent grade. Our short-term care grades are likely most important for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area was long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of D. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 88.16326 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
