Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our higher scores. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's third highest score was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its abysmal rating in this area, we were not shocked to discover this facility offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
This nursing home's weakest category is nursing, which is the last area we assessed. We gave it an abysmal F for this category. Despite a few decent grades in other categories, this score is still disappointing so we wanted to make a note of it. The nursing grade assesses quite a few factors, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. With a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
