Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections category. This grade is far better than the place's overall grade. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing grades are largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road score in the category of long-term care, with a grade of B-. With our long-term care assessment, we focus more on the quantity of care provided by a facility, as well as a few quality datapoints. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 95.95016 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated was short-term care, is this facility's worst category. We gave this facility a D in that area. In crafting our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Based on its poor score in this category, we were not shocked to discover this place provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
