Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many severe deficiencies flagged. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care rating is one of its best scores. The facility received a C in this category. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care rating. This is not a very good score. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The next category we graded was nursing, which was this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this category. The nursing score is based on several components, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
