Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to note that this facility received impressive short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our better scores in this category, with a B. This proved to be the facility's second strongest grade. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing grade assesses a handful of datapoints, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this metric. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients more often.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our next category, this facility really did not fare well. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this was its poorest category. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.03846 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
