Registered Staff Hours

As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a B-. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another area of concern is that 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.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second highest category was its short-term care score, where it was given a B-. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Moving on to our next area, this facility was awarded a grade of C in long-term care, which is a decent score.

In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid datapoint. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
