Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second highest category is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a C. Our short-term care grades are crucial for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Nursing ratings are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below average. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving residents more often.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is long-term care, which is a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a D in long-term care. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
