Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a strong score in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B in this area, which is one of our more impressive grades. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 88.54489 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we were hoping for. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 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 C. Nursing grades are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
Our final category is short-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a C in that category. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most important for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
