Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. 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 arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received high marks in the category of long-term care, with a superb grade of A- in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 91.45729 percent of its patients. This is somewhat less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. We gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. The nursing grade consists of several subcategories, but the main one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed is short-term care, which was this facility's least impressive area. It received a lowly F in this area, which is clearly a major disappointment. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is more often than not a solid assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this facility's case, it looks like it provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.9 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
