Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's better category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B. It actually fared better than most facilities in this area. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's worst category was short-term care, which is the last area we looked at. We gave it a lowly F for this area. Even with some decent grades in other categories, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we wanted to make a note of it. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
