Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received impressive scores in the category of long-term care as well. Consequently, it received one of our most dominant scores in that area with a score of A+. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 82.38994 percent of its patients. This is slightly lower than we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most other nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was short-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest area. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is clearly a bit of a concern. In crafting these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
