Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home 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. Our inspection scores are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. In computing these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. It does not look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive scores. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 98.46743 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This nursing home's worst area was nursing, which is the final area we assessed. Sadly, it received an F in this category. Even with some solid grades in other categories, this grade is still alarming so we felt obligated to point it out. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
