Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspection reports 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 these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
An additional strength of this facility is its impressive score in long-term care. We gave it one of our better scores in that area, with a score of A-. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 97.53086 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not a score to write home about. In computing these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we learned that this place offers fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The next area we assessed is nursing. It received a lowly F for this area, which is a poor grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
