Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this proved to be a decent nursing home is it received a very favorable nursing rating. Its nursing score is its best category. In that area, we gave this facility a B+. There are a host of datapoints included in this area. Many of these criteria reflect levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this category. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more important for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

We would also like to draw your attention to this nursing home's strong inspection rating. This facility earned a B in this category, which is one of our better grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst area is long-term care, which is the last area we scored. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. 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 looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 99.65987 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
