Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 80.751175 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we expected but still a respectable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second least favorable score was short-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a well below average grade. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Based on its weak score in this area, we weren't stunned to find this nursing home provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
The next area we assessed was nursing, which is this facility's least impressive area. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is certainly concerning. When determining our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This place averaged just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
