Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Another strong feature for this facility is that it received a favorable long-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B+. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.881355 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home was awarded a decent nursing score of B-. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
