Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the area of long-term care. This proved to be its second most favorable category. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility received an F for its short-term care score. Our short-term care scores are important for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Moving on to the final category, this nursing home did not perform well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. With just 0.1 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
