Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B for our nursing rating. This score is more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a patient more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this facility a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our more favorable scores. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more important for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third highest area ended up being its long-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the amount of care offered by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The last category we looked at was inspections. This nursing home did not receive positive inspection reports in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F in this category. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This particular facility had 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 48 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
