Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we did give it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it received a B+. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its second best category score in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this area, which is an acceptable grade. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home.
The last category we rated was nursing. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in that category. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
