Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most respectable category is short-term care, but it nevertheless received a grade of just D in that category. This turns out to be a relatively poor score. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This category is typically a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In this place's case, we found that it provides far less registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Given its score in this area, this did not surprise us. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength either for this facility. We found that just 46.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor grade. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated only 87.05036 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. Although it had 3.32 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score wasn't bad due to it having some more complicated patients. This is its best score in this category
