Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this facility a score of A- in that area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. We gave this nursing home an D. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are with residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded was short-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. Of course, this category pulled down the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. In computing our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is often a reliable assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. It appears that this facility was below average in many staffing metrics we focus on. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
