Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given an F for its short-term care score. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Given its score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 90.39548 percent of its patients.
