Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also performed well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a score of A- for that area, which happens to be one of our most impressive grades. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 87.23404 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a few points less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this nursing home an D. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is short-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a significant disappointment. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.1 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
