Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.47716 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

When determining a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care, which proved to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this area. Unfortunately, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4 percent of its residents returning home.
