Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given a favorable long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that area with a score of B+. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.984924 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing score looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a C. This actually proved to be this nursing home's worst category. This is nevertheless not a terrible score. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 3.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
