Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades came in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.42105 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home was given its next highest category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is a decent grade. In computing these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Our final category is nursing, where we gave this facility a grade of C in this category. There are many factors within this area. Most of the factors are tied to staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities.
