Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
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 grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is a very low figure. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

The next category we analyzed is long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. In computing our long-term care grades, we look at the personal care offered to the facility's residents. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
