Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. 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 nursing home also performed well in the area of long-term care. For this reason, we gave it a grade of A- in that category, which happens to be one of our most impressive scores. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.3964 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital.

This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its weak score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home did not perform well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this was this nursing home's worst area. There are quite a few factors included in this area. Most of these criteria relate to nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores.
