Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none 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
Among the reasons we rated this facility so well is that it received a very impressive long-term care score. Indeed, long-term care turned out to be its second most favorable category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.22481 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing score features a number of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was nursing, turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this area. This really is one of the few weak links in a quality profile. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. In this facility's case, it looks like it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
