In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Short-term care grades are typically used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This place fared as well as just about any facility in this area with 58 percent of its residents returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this statistic.

Next we wanted to quickly point out one of this facility's major weaknesses. In the area of nursing care, we gave this nursing home a lowly grade of F. Our nursing score is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. In addition to rating below average in nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also had poor marks in the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in both of these datapoints. This is a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. These statistics pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade significantly.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category is long-term care, which is the final category we scored. It received a lowly F in this category. Even with several acceptable grades in other categories, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we would like to to draw your attention to it. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 97.58064 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.92 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
