Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also performed well in the category of long-term care, with high-end score of A- in this category. Facilities that do well in this category tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.53052 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. We gave this facility a score of D. When calculating our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is obviously a major concern. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.
