Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received a grade of A. The nursing score features a number of datapoints. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a strong short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

We also wanted to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a grade of B+ in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of C. This actually was this nursing home's least impressive area. This is still not a major area of concern. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 98.83382 percent of its patients, which is a very solid total. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
