Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its next best category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective 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 assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.53271 percent of its patients. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The final category we rated was nursing, which ended up being a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of D in nursing. The nursing category includes quite a few subcategories, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This statistic is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
