Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a decent grade in the area of short-term care, with a C. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, nursing scores also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 57.088123 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
