Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it received a somewhat respectable grade in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that area, which is not bad. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
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 is largely based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. 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. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its next best category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is a decent grade. In determining our long-term care scores, we look at the personal care received by a facility's residents. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is a fair grade in this area. Short-term care grades are crucial for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
