Registered Staff Hours
In addition to earning a strong overall score, this facility fared even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the nursing home's recent inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that category, which is one of our best grades. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in that category, with a score of B+. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.89474 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. With our short-term care score, we strive to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable nursing grade of C. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.
