Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive inspection report.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an D. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This particular place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This number is far below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's next best score is long-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 97.83951 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was short-term care. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in that area. With our short-term care score, we try to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
