Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a favorable grade in long-term care. This facility received a B+ in this category, which turns out to be one of our better grades. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.01385 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. Our nursing score includes many datapoints, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is certainly a significant concern. In crafting our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, this place was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we considered. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
