Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually received a slightly more favorable score in the area of inspections. We awarded it a grade of B- for that area, which is not bad. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its next most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is a decent score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth category, this facility was given a B- for long-term care, which is generally an acceptable rating. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
