Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's higher category grades was in the area of long-term care. This proved to be its second best category. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
Our last category is short-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a B- in this category. In computing these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
