Registered Staff Hours
It should also be noted that this nursing home's inspection grade outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a B for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection scores are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This nursing home's short-term care rating turns out to be one of its more favorable grades. The nursing home received a B- in this category. In crafting our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility'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 scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities.

The next area we scored was long-term care. It received a lowly F in this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is certainly a significant concern. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 91.95876 percent of its patients, which is slightly less than we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
