Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received strong long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our better grades in this category, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest score. 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. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.42197 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. Our short-term care scores are critical for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We found that this place was below average in many staffing metrics we looked at. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
