Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall performance, we gave this place an A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was given an impressive long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that category with a grade of B+. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 27.403847 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B- in this category. Our short-term care grade is generally used to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Our last category is nursing, in which we gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category. Our nursing grade includes many data points. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area.
