Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In this area, we gave it a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors 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
This nursing home fared well in our long-term care category. Indeed, we gave it a grade of A- for that category, which happens to be one of our most dominant scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.14286 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In determining our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Switching gears to our last category, this facility really didn't perform well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is obviously this facility's weakest grade. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
