Registered Staff Hours
It should be noted that this facility's inspection rating outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a positive grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our more favorable grades. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.56332 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing rating is primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is short-term care, which is the last area we scored. For this category, we gave this nursing home a D. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Considering its score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this place is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
