Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in that category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 84.42211 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. Nursing ratings are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive area was short-term care, which is the last area we assessed. It received an F in this area. Even with a few respectable grades in other categories, this score is nevertheless disappointing so we wanted to point it out. In computing these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this facility was well below average in many staffing figures we assess. In fact, it supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its residents returning home.
