Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate 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
Contributing to this facility's list of accomplishments, it also received a superb long-term care score. We awarded them a dominant grade of A- in this area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 92.94118 percent of its patients, which is slightly below what we expected. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its next most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a respectable grade. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
The final category we scored is nursing, which is this facility's least impressive area. We gave this facility a D in that category. Of course, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. We weighed the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Unfortunately, this place also did not perform as well as we had hoped in some of the quality measures we assessed for this category.
