Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A for the area of inspections. Our inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A- for our short-term care score. In computing these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing grade weighs a handful of factors, however, the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is long-term care, proved to be this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. This was one of just a couple of dings in an otherwise impressive report card. In a long-term care environment, the 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. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
