Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A+. Our inspection ratings are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing or medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 93.42532 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' 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 quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was short-term care, was this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a D in that area. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Given its weak grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn this place offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
