Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid government inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall score. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many severe deficiencies flagged. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
The second most favorable category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a C. Our short-term care scores are likely more critical for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was long-term care. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. In a long-term care setting, the 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. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 95.1049 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
