Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far better than its overall score. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. It doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
An additional strength of this facility is its very strong score in long-term care. We gave it one of our most impressive scores in that area, with a grade of A. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next area, this nursing home did not fare well. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this was its worst category. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
