Registered Staff Hours
While this facility'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. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also performed favorably in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Very few facilities performed better in this category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 86.910995 percent of its patients. This is a few points lower than we expected but still a decent figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's next best score was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared relatively badly. Our short-term care grades are likely most meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final category we rated was nursing. We awarded this nursing home a D for our nursing category, making this the nursing home's least impressive category grade. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This facility averaged only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
