Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid inspections in recent years. We gave it a B in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. Our inspection ratings are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B- in this category. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, in which this facility received an abysmal score in this category also. We gave it an F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 99.124084 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
