Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a strong score in short-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our better grades. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. There are quite a few criteria included in this area. Many of the factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is an abysmal score. This is obviously a major disappointment. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.66667 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
