Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest grades in this area with an A+. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a positive score in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in that area. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facilities next most favorable area was long-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.510635 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Switching gears to our fourth area, we gave this facility a D in nursing. This was the facility's weakest category rating. Sadly, this category hurt the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
