Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Not many nursing homes performed more favorably in this category. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.80851 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

The next area we looked at was nursing, where we gave this facility an F. This was definitely one of this facility's major weaknesses. In calculating our nursing scores, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. We gave it an abysmal F for this category. In spite of multiple decent grades in other areas, this score is still alarming so we felt obligated to make a note of it. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we looked at. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
