Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A+. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category grades was in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.21959 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. In calculating our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. Sadly, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
