Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its next highest category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. In determining our long-term care grades, we size up the assistance with daily living received by a nursing home's residents. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 98.94737 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we graded is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of C. Short-term care grades are crucial for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
This facility's worst category was nursing, which is the last category we assessed. For this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Our nursing grade weighs several subcategories, however, the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
