Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with an A. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this nursing home's inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.4587 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing score is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. This is clearly a significant disappointment. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With a score this poor for this area, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was well below average in multiple staffing metrics we focus on. It offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
