Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Inspection scores are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's second highest score was long-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat poorly. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 93.60269 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat below what we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. In determining a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility received a very poor score in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we found that this facility provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
