Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that area, with an A. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection scores are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was awarded strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more favorable scores in this area, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the facility's second best score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 62.259308 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is certainly a significant concern. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we learned that this place provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.5 percent of its residents returning home.
