Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

The last area we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home received a C. This turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. This is nevertheless not a major area of concern. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 99.4186 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
