Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's higher category grades came in the area of long-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In our long-term care grade, we focus on the amount of care provided by a facility, as well as a few qualitative metrics. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this facility provided the vaccine to just 77.557755 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. There are several subcategories within this grade. Most of the subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care, is this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. This really is one of just a few dings on an otherwise strong report card. Short-term care grades are often used to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. In this place's case, we found that it provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
