Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's higher category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this category. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Long-term Care Quality
Our final category is long-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a C in that area. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of care provided by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.6337 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
