Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our better grades. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 89.64143 percent of its patients. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home a score of D. The nursing rating includes a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 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 calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is more often than not a fair assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. Based on its score in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
