Registered Staff Hours
In addition to having a decent overall score, we also want to point out that this place received favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this area. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more important for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing rating weighs numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that area. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for residents requiring more conventional assistance related to activities of daily living. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.99666 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
