Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care grade appears to be one of its higher features. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this area. In forming our long-term care ratings, we look at the facility's personal care services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 60.768177 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its next best category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this category, which is a respectable grade. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more critical for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
Moving on to our fourth category, we gave this facility a grade of D for the area of nursing. This was the nursing home's worst category score. Naturally, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In computing our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
