Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not 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 always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a favorable score in long-term care. This nursing home received a B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our better grades. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.68254 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. Nursing scores are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This particular place offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This number is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated is short-term care, which is this facility's weakest category. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is obviously a major concern. With our short-term care score, we seek to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Given its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
