Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was strong in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A. Very few nursing homes received a better grade in this category. In computing these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded an above average long-term care grade this year, with a C. While this is not quite as dominant as several of its other grades, this is nevertheless a decent grade in this category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility provided the vaccine to only 87.128716 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
