While this nursing home received a decent overall rating, its inspections rating is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received a strong score in that area with a B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
The second highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was long-term care. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our long-term care grades are more critical for patients in need of more conventional assistance related to personal care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information on its vaccination levels. Finally, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
