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. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a positive grade in short-term care. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which turns out to be one of our more favorable scores. In forming these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The third highest category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Long-term care grades are often used to score a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.05882 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The next area we scored was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is a decent grade in this category. Nursing grades are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
