Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care grade. This is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Based on its abysmal grade in this area, we were not shocked to find this facility provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home.
This nursing home's weakest area is nursing, which is the last category we looked at. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of just D. In computing our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
