Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a positive long-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which happens to be one of our better. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. We gave this facility an impressive grade of D. Our nursing score assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category. Despite some respectable scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless alarming so we wanted to draw your attention to it. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
