Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A- for our short-term care score. Short-term care ratings are vital for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for long-term care. This is the nursing home's weakest category grade. However, you shouldn't focus exclusively a single bad score. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 83.064514 percent of its patients for pneumonia.
