Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
We also want to alert you to the fact that this facility received an elite score of A in our short-term care area. Short-term care ratings are important for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Another impressive feature of this nursing home is its inspection grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an impressive grade of A. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's weakest category. We gave this nursing home a D in this category. However, we would not judge this facility solely on one bad area, as it received some high-end scores in other areas. In our long-term care rating, we weigh the amount of care offered by a nursing home, as well as a handful of qualitative measures. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.28571 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
