Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we awarded this facility an A- for its inspection grade. This is far more impressive than its overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
This facility's second best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory.

With our long-term care grade, we focus more on the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, as well as a handful of qualitative metrics. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 96.742676 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. This is a decent grade in this category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
