Short-term Care Quality
This facility earned a very favorable short-term care grade. In fact, its short-term care grade ended up being its best category. We gave this them a B+. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its next most favorable category score in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area, which is a respectable score. Our long-term care scores are important for individuals looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This nursing home's weakest area was nursing, which is the last area we looked at. We gave it an abysmal F for this category. Despite multiple solid grades in other categories, this grade is still of a concern so we wanted to draw your attention to it. Nursing grades are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This number is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
