Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 92.72727 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we expected but still a decent percentage. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not an impressive grade. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most important for individuals in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this nursing home was subpar in many staffing metrics we looked at. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home.
Moving on to the next area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category. This is the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Naturally, this score pulled down the facility's overall grade a bit. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
