Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a favorable long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 94.81481 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we graded is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a solid grade of C. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Turning to our final category, we gave this facility a D in our nursing category. This is the facility's weakest category score. Unfortunately, this score hurt the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. Our nursing grade is mostly based on a nursing home'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. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
