Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Arguably the most important factor we consider 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 dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a strong score in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.07113 percent of its patients, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

The final area we looked at was short-term care. We gave this facility a D in the area of short-term care, making this the facility's least impressive category grade. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. In this place's case, it looks like it offered less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
