Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.346405 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a respectable grade in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of C. In determining these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Moving on to the final area, this nursing home really did not fare very well. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this was this facility's poorest category. There are a host of criteria included in this grade. Many of these factors are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
