Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A-. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility vaccinated 97.57576 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a resident more often.
Short-term Care Quality
Our next area is short-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that category. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
