Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care score appears to be one of its respectable features. The facility was awarded a grade of B- in this category. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to assess a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this facility an D. There are numerous subcategories included in this category. Many of these factors reflect staffing levels. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, this facility didn't fare very well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's worst area. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. 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 considered the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
