Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we wanted to point out its decent inspection reports in recent years. We awarded it a relatively respectable grade of B- in this category. We believe that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't 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. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, 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 place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third most favorable area is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In computing these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a grade of B- for the area. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for residents needing more conventional assistance related to personal care. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.36709 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
