Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. 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. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this nursing home's inspections.
This facility earned high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of B-. Our nursing score is based on quite a few components, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this area. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning residents more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score. This is well below average in this category. Short-term care grades are often employed to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. With a grade this poor in this category, we weren't shocked to learn this nursing home was below average in many staffing figures we assess. The nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is long-term care, is this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.42197 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
