Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in this category with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category was short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this category. Our short-term care ratings are critical for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This facility's weakest category was nursing, which is the final area we assessed. Sadly, it received an F in this category. Despite a few respectable grades in other areas, this score is nevertheless concerning so we felt obligated to draw your attention to it.

This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This number is far below average.
