Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a strong score in our short-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B in that area. Short-term care grades are important for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are more important for patients needing more conventional assistance related to activities of daily living. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 96.666664 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The last category we analyzed is nursing. We gave this facility a D in the area of nursing, leaving this as the facility's least impressive area. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
