Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall score. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This facility was hit with 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent score in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. With our short-term care score, we strive to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This nursing home's worst area is long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of D. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe.

Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
