While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale.

This facility was given a strong long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category with a grade of B.

This nursing home is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this category. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Switching gears to our fourth category, this nursing home was given a B- for nursing, which we consider to be an acceptable rating. The nursing rating assesses many factors, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents even once per day.
