Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Not having any deficiencies proved to be this nursing home's greatest accomplishment.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a positive score in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 52.734375 percent of its patients. This is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of short-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in that category. In our short-term care category, we try to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home didn't fare very well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. The nursing rating features a variety of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
