Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's higher category grades came in the area of short-term care. This turned out to be its second most favorable category. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In calculating our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is not an impressive grade. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.46524 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The final area we graded was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is obviously a major disappointment. Our nursing score looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This number is significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
