Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we would like to point out its decent health inspection reports in recent years. We gave it a relatively respectable grade of B- in that area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing score is largely based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing scores also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next category, this facility was awarded a grade of C for long-term care, which is a decent score. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 83.49515 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points below average. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
