Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better scores in that area with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. The lack of deficiencies is this nursing home's greatest accomplishment.
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is well below average. Lastly, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility received an F for its long-term care grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the amount of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 97.25777 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our next area, this facility didn't perform well in this area either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
