The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received a favorable score in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 74.806206 percent of its residents, which is somewhat below what we anticipated. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.2 percent of its residents returning home.
This facility's least impressive area was nursing, which is the last area we assessed. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category. Despite multiple decent grades in other areas, this score is still disappointing so we wanted to point it out. The nursing rating includes a variety of factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
