Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a favorable score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B+ in that area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its short-term care score, which is not one of our better scores. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this nursing home provided less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
Turning to the last category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in nursing. This was the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Naturally, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. The nursing score considers a variety of data points. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
