Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's quality category scores came in the category of long-term care. We gave them one of our higher scores in that area, with a score of B+. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 95.7346 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. 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. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D for the area of short-term care, rendering this its weakest grade. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. We found that this facility was subpar in multiple staffing metrics we focus on. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
