Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a positive long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a B+ in that area, which happens to be one of our better. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.10145 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is clearly very disappointing. Our short-term care grade is often employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.3 percent of its residents returning home.
