Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in that category, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing rating includes several subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at is long-term care, ended up being this facility's worst category. We gave this facility a D in that area. This really was one of just a few weak links of a very solid report card. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 66.66667 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is quite a bit below average. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
