Registered Staff Hours
On top of having a decent overall score, we also wanted to point out that this facility received favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. This is a much better grade than the nursing home's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is definitely a great sign for this nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care rating is one of its higher features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent score in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a C. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care instead of the highly skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 97.34849 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The next category we graded is nursing, which ended up being this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
