Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this facility an B-. We weighed the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third highest area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is certainly a major concern. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
