Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that had too many severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home an D. The nursing rating assesses a handful of subcategories, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. With only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's third highest score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. With a grade this poor in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility was well below average in multiple staffing areas we looked at. It supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
