Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many positive things to say about this facility's overall score, it earned a respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent grade in this category with a score of B-. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number 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 facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we assessed was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a decent grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most important for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next category, we gave this nursing home a D for the area of long-term care. This was the facility's least impressive category grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 95.78544 percent of its patients, which is an above average percentage. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
