Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded an impressive short-term care score. Indeed, we gave it a B in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. With our short-term care score, we seek to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.09091 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
This facility's least impressive area is nursing, which is the final category we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area. In spite of a few decent scores in other areas, this grade is still alarming so we wanted to draw your attention to it. We weighed the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in determining our score in this area. This place offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This statistic is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
