Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. This score is better than this place's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

The next highest area we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth category, we gave this facility a grade of D in our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's worst category rating. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 64.596275 percent of its residents. This is many points below what we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
