Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable scores. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 61.19403 percent of its patients. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was short-term care. We gave it an F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
