Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not a highlight, it did receive a very good grade in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of C in the area. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care score. This is not a score to write home about. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Considering its score in this area, we were not surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was long-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a D in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the vaccine to only 59.734512 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
