Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
The second most favorable category we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Long-term care grades are generally used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 91.860466 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's third best score is short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. In our short-term care rating, we attempt to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its poor grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find this place provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
The last category we rated was nursing, turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a D in that category. Our nursing score assesses quite a few components, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
