Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility a better than average grade of B in that category. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.10145 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third most favorable category we gave this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
This nursing home's weakest category is nursing, which is the final category we scored. It received an F for this category. Despite multiple solid scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we wanted to point it out. The nursing score features a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This place offered a meager 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
