Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall score, it earned a respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent score in that area with a score of B-. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, 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.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its next most favorable category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this area, which is an acceptable grade. Short-term care grades are critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in that category. This is not a bad grade in this area. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for those in need of more traditional services associated with personal care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.61686 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
