Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received impressive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 83.08157 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's next highest category was short-term care. However, with a D in this category, it still fared relatively badly. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the figures we assessed. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
This nursing home's worst area is nursing, which is the last category we looked at. It received a lowly F in this category. In spite of some acceptable grades in other areas, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we felt obligated to make a note of it. There are several subcategories included in this category. Many of these subcategories relate to staffing levels. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
