Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a strong grade in long-term care. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our higher scores. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area is its short-term care score, where it received a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are important for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Turning to the last area, this facility did not perform very well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is its poorest grade. When determining our nursing scores, we factor in both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
