Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.31507 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital.

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's worst category is short-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of D. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
