Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in this category with an A. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received favorable long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher scores in this category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second best score. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

The next best category we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a C. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
The final category we analyzed was nursing, is this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
