Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. Inspection grades 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 quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's more respectable category scores came in the area of long-term care. This wound up being its second best category. In that category, we awarded this facility a C. With our long-term care assessment, we assess the volume of care provided by a facility, as well as some quality datapoints. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of short-term care, this facility received just a D in this area. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade in this range in this category, we were not shocked to find this nursing home was well below average in two of the key staffing figures we assess. In fact, it provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
The last category we rated is nursing, turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave this facility a D in that category. The nursing score includes a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
