Registered Staff Hours
It should also be noted that this nursing home's nursing score outpaced its overall rating. We gave it a grade of B for its nursing score. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a strong grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility a better than average grade of B in this area. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

This nursing home also earned a very favorable inspection grade. In that area, we gave this facility a B.

Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

The final category we analyzed is long-term care, which is a weak link for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of D in long-term care. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category.
