Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it actually received an impressive nursing score this year. We gave it a B in this category. We looked at the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. With our short-term care grade, we strive to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its third best category score in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable statistic. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The final category we looked at is inspections. This facility didn't receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F. For places with bad inspection grades, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst categories of deficiencies. Lastly, we would like to point out that this facility received large government fines in recent years exceeding $50,000. This usually suggests that inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of bad government inspections.
