Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category scores came in the area of long-term care. This ended up being its second best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next best category we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The final category we rated was nursing, which was a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a D in the area of nursing. When determining our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This number is far below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
