Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in that area, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care rating. This is not an impressive grade. In our short-term care grade, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we discovered that this place provided less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home.
The next area we rated was nursing, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is obviously concerning. Nursing ratings are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
