Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. 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
This facility also fared well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a score of A in that category, which happens to be one of our best grades. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective 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. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 93.3121 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care rating. This is not a very good score. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the staffing figures we looked at. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.6 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
The final area we looked at was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is an abysmal score. This is clearly a major concern. Nursing ratings are tied to levels of nurse staffing. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
