Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it a B+ in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.46032 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third highest area we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is generally a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. It does not appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final category we scored was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a very poor score. This is clearly a major concern. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the 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. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average nursing home. This could be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, these metrics hurt this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.
