Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
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 rating analyzes several factors, most of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category was its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are likely most critical for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is long-term care. This nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
