Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent score in the category of short-term care, with a B-. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. This is clearly a significant concern. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 77.57576 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
