Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. 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. Based on this, we still had a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
The next highest area we gave this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a D in that category. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 93.04348 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we expected but still a respectable percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
