Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with an A. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
This nursing home earned high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of C. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality
The third highest category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a C. Short-term care grades are generally employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was long-term care, ended up being this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
