Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This is far better than its overall score. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also performed favorably in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Not many facilities fared more favorably in this category. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 93.07692 percent of its residents. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

The next area we looked at was nursing, where we gave this facility an F. This was definitely one of this facility's major weaknesses. The nursing score analyzes many factors, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility averaged a meager 0.6 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We gave it an F in this area, which is obviously very disappointing. Short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a grade this poor in this category, we were not shocked to learn that this facility was well below average in many staffing figures we focus on. The facility provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.6 percent of its residents returning home.
