Although we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's more respectable category scores was in the area of long-term care. This wound up being its second most favorable category. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. We'd have to do a little more research into this nursing home before opining further on this category as it looks like we are missing a few metrics for long-term care.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest category is short-term care, where it received just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. Our short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
The next area we scored is nursing, which is this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. There are a number of data points included in this category. Many of the subcategories relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
