Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for our inspections rating. This score is better than the place's overall score. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we gave this facility an B-. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B- in this category. Short-term care grades are generally used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at was long-term care, where this nursing home received a rock bottom grade here as well. It received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinates 97.27627 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
