While we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall score. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a patient even once per day.
We awarded this facility a grade of C for the category of inspections. This grade is better than its overall score. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place had 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, they also received 28 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest category was long-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility gave the vaccine to just 68 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was short-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of just D in the area of short-term care. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. As you might expect, we found that this facility provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
