Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that have too many deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
The second best area we gave this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a C. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.85496 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital.
