Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent grade in the category of long-term care, with a B-. Our long-term care scores are more critical for patients requiring more conventional services associated with activities of daily living. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 63.45178 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's next best score is short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The last category we looked at is nursing, in which this facility received a very poor score in this category as well. It received a lowly F in this area, which is definitely a major concern. Our nursing grade analyzes many components, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. 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-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
