Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this place a weak overall grade, we actually gave it a somewhat respectable score in the area of inspections, where it received a B-. This was certainly better than its other categories. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable category was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this category. Our long-term care grade is often used to grade a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 93.965515 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a D in this category. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most important for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score in this range for this area, we weren't shocked to discover that this place was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we assess. The facility supplied substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
