Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more favorable category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. In computing these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which is not one of our better scores. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.514565 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
The final area we looked at was nursing, which was a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of just D in the area of nursing. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This place averaged only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
