Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second most favorable category turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it received a B-. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was its long-term care grade, where it was given a C. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The next category we graded is nursing, which ended up being this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. Of course, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. Our nursing score assesses quite a few factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
