Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. We weren't able to track down deficiency data for this facility. Without having all of the deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being a challenge to evaluate it in the inspections category.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category scores came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is typically a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last category we assessed was nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is certainly very concerning. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
