Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
The second most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In crafting our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final category, this facility was awarded a grade of C for long-term care, which is generally an acceptable grade. In determining our long-term care scores, we assess the assistance with daily living offered to a facility's residents. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 99.30556 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital.
