Registered Staff Hours
In addition to having a decent overall score, we also wanted to note that this nursing home received favorable nursing marks this year. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. This proved to be the facility's top score. There are several subcategories included in this grade. Most of these subcategories reflect nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a strong score in short-term care. This nursing home received a B in this area, which turns out to be one of our better scores. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

This nursing home received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. Inspection ratings are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. This is obviously a major concern. For residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
