Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also awarded this facility an impressive grade in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which turns out to be one of our higher scores. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 87.755104 percent of its residents.

Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is more often than not a reliable assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
