We awarded this nursing home a very solid grade of B+ in this area. Inspection ratings are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also would like to note that this facility was awarded strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest grade. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 80.21978 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is not a bad grade in this category. Short-term care grades are meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
