Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have too many deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category scores was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.296295 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. Short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home.
The last category we graded was nursing. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a poor grade. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
