Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our better grades. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third highest category was short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a C. Our short-term care grade is generally used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The next area we graded was nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is clearly very disappointing. The nursing grade includes a handful of data points, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. In addition to its subpar nursing hour totals, this facility earned suboptimal scores in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We found that more of this place's patients experienced falls which led to serious injury. We would argue that many falls could be prevented with better nursing care. This metric contributed to this nursing home receiving a terrible nursing grade.
