Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 79.30175 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

The next area we looked at was nursing, where we gave this facility an F. This was definitely one of this facility's major weaknesses. Nursing grades are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is short-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst category. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is certainly a major concern. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
