Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is much more impressive than the facility's overall score. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had too many deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third most favorable category is its short-term care score, where it received a grade of C. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the next category, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 77.02128 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
