Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection scores are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's higher category grades came in the area of short-term care. This proved to be its second most respectable category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this subcategory. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving residents more often.

The next area we analyzed is long-term care, which is a low point for this facility. We gave this facility a grade of just D in the area of long-term care. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 98.58491 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
