Registered Staff Hours
We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection score exceeded its overall grade. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our better grades. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this facility's higher category scores was in the category of short-term care. This ended up being its second most respectable category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a solid grade in the category of long-term care, with a C. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.04762 percent of its residents. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Our next category is nursing, where we awarded this nursing home a C in this area. There are many criteria included in this grade. Most of these subcategories reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is a very low figure. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a patient at least once a day.
