Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a quality facility is that it received a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In that area, we gave it an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care scores this year. Indeed, we gave them one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of B+.

This category is frequently a useful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

This was one of just a couple of dings in a very solid report card. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 92.59259 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
