Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also performed well in the area of long-term care. For this reason, we gave it a score of A- for that category, which happens to be one of our best scores. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 91.12426 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home received a grade of just D in that area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this nursing home's case, we found that it offers fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
Switching gears to the next category, this facility really did not fare well. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this was its weakest category grade. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
