Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. When computing our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the final area, this nursing home really didn't perform well. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is its poorest category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is typically a useful assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
