Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, we were not able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care. For this reason, we gave it a grade of A- for that area, which is one of our most impressive grades. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care grade. This is well below average in this category. In forming our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. It looks like this place was below average in many staffing metrics we assessed. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its patients returning home.
Turning to the next area, this facility really did not perform well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is this nursing home's worst area. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
