Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the facility's overall score. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing score. We awarded them an impressive grade of B- in this category. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The next best category we gave this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is long-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for long-term care. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 65.94203 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
