Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong long-term care score. In fact, we gave them a grade of B in this area, which is one of our better. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 88.161995 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, 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 figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses are caring for residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category was short-term care, which is the last area we looked at. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area. Despite some acceptable grades in other areas, this score is still disappointing so we wanted to point it out. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is typically a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
