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.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of C. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.22481 percent of its patients. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The next category we assessed was nursing, which is this facility's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. There are many factors included in this grade. Most of these subcategories relate to levels of nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
