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 weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home performed well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a score of A for that category, which turns out to be one of our higher grades. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the senior population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing score consists of a handful of datapoints, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was short-term care, ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this area. This really is one of just a few weak links on a strong profile. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It appears that this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the staffing figures we considered. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually 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.
