Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our more impressive grades. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a respectable grade in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In the area of long-term care, we weigh the quantity of care provided by a facility, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The last area we graded was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
