Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area was its long-term care grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for residents in need of more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not an impressive grade. Short-term care grades are often employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Given its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
The final category we assessed was nursing. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a very poor grade. This is obviously a significant disappointment. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. With only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
