Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection grades are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded it a first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home a grade of A-. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.52216 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care, was this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. This really is one of just a couple of dings on an otherwise strong report card. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
