Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B+. This proved to be the facility's second strongest score. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.67532 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development was the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this place offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
The final area we scored is nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave it an F for this area, which is clearly very concerning. When determining a facility's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
