Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its strong overall performance, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for the area of inspections. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. While 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
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so well is that it received a very impressive long-term care score. In fact, long-term care is its second highest category score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.64413 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this was not one of this facility's strong suits. We awarded it a grade of D in this category. Clearly, this facility performed much better in the categories discussed above. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a very poor grade. You shouldn't simply disqualify a facility due to one bad category though. Our short-term care grades are crucial for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this nursing home provided less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
