Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a middle of the road grade in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 90.322586 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's third highest category is short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively poorly. In our short-term care rating, we try to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home didn't perform well here either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as bad as it gets. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
