Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this place an A+ for the area of inspections. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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 gave this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care grade. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of D. This is not as strong as some of its other category scores. Candidly, this is a lower grade than we were expecting. Short-term care grades are often employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The final area we assessed was nursing, was this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. This really was one of just a couple of weak links in an otherwise impressive report card. There are a number of data points included in this grade. Many of these criteria relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
