Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong nursing home overall, this place excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other achievements is its first-rate long-term care score. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a score of A-. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Finally, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, we awarded this facility a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This is the facility's weakest category rating. Sadly, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. Our short-term care ratings are probably more critical for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
