Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades was in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this category. In computing our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is considered to be a fair measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. The nursing grade is based on a handful of datapoints, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Finally, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this area, we gave this facility a D. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
