Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's better category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 34.562214 percent of its patients. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's third highest score was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this facility provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This facility's least impressive category was nursing, which is the last category we analyzed. In this category, we gave this facility a D. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
