Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a positive short-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we gave it a grade of B in that area, which is one of our more favorable scores. Short-term care grades are generally employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Our nursing category assesses many datapoints, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this statistic. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a patient more often.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is long-term care, which is this facility's worst area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. Unfortunately, this score pulled down the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.514565 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
