Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home fared even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the facility's recent inspections. We gave it a grade of A- for this area, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care score. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, we awarded this facility a D for long-term care. This was the nursing home's worst category score. However, you should not over-emphasize a single poor category. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.26471 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
