Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall grade, it earned a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent score in that category with a B-. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
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 grade is primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
The next most favorable category we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel score in this category also. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
