Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a strong grade in our long-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Our nursing grade consists of many subcategories, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the final category we assessed. It received an F for this area. In spite of multiple solid scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless alarming so we felt obligated to draw your attention to it. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its residents returning home.
