Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall score. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
The next highest category we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. The nursing rating is based on a number of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving patients more often.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility administered the vaccine to just 76.69173 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
