Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a strong facility overall, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat 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 awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care score. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.65636 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was short-term care. In this area, where we gave this nursing home a D, which isn't quite as impressive as some of its other category scores. Our short-term care scores are probably most meaningful for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
Moving on to the next category, this facility really didn't perform well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is clearly its weakest category. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
