Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to note its decent inspection reports in recent years. We gave it a somewhat respectable grade of B- in that area. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 7.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. For patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
