Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This is far better than the facility's overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a middle of the road grade in the area of long-term care, with a B-. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.53271 percent of its patients. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing rating assesses a handful of components, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last category, this facility really didn't fare well. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this was its poorest category grade. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Based on its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home.
