Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a favorable score in long-term care. This facility received a grade of B in this area, which turns out to be one of our higher scores. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.58357 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second worse score is short-term care, where it received just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade this poor in this category, we weren't stunned to discover this facility was well below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. The facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 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 grade.
The next category we looked at is nursing, which proved to be this facility's worst category. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is certainly concerning. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
