Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' 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 nursing home's more favorable category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.08429 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. There are quite a few subcategories included in this category. Many of the subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
Our next category is short-term care, where we gave this nursing home a grade of C in this area. In our short-term care category, we try to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
