Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest grades in this category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its next best category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a respectable score.

Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we assessed was short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care grades are presumably more meaningful for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
This nursing home's weakest area is nursing, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we awarded this facility a D. Nursing ratings are largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
