Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility received a favorable short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that area with a score of B. Our short-term care ratings are likely most important for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
In addition, this nursing home also received favorable long-term care scores this year. In fact, we gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.65229 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The final area we assessed was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in that area. This is a fair grade in this area. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving residents at least once a day.
