Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this proved to be a decent nursing home is it earned a favorable inspection grade. In this category, we awarded this facility a B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded them a B in that area, which happens to be one of our better. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.11539 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with residents, in calculating our rating in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated was short-term care, which ended up being a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. As you might expect, we learned that this place provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.3 percent of its residents returning home.
