Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded an impressive score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 79.61165 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category is short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this category. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The final category we scored is nursing, which ended up being this facility's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. When determining our nursing grades, we analyze both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
