Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home has received near flawless inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also fared very well in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Very few facilities performed better in this area. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Our nursing grade weighs many factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is long-term care, which is a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our long-term care category, making this the facility's worst category. We would still suggest that you consider all of a nursing home's grades. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's personal care instead of the skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.07407 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
