Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we wanted to point out its decent inspection reports in recent years. We gave it a relatively respectable score of B- in this area. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area is long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this category. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.37107 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. The nursing grade consists of many subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is short-term care, which was a weak spot for this facility. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this facility provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
