Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that had too many deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home received a B- in this category. Short-term care grades are typically used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in this area. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.117645 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
