Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our third category, this nursing home also earned a score of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 74.089066 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was short-term care. We gave this nursing home a D for our short-term care category, leaving this as the facility's least impressive grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We found that this nursing home was subpar in the two key staffing metrics we looked at. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
