Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to point out that this nursing home received a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it one of our most impressive scores in this category with a score of A. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. When determining our nursing grades, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is clearly a major concern. In our short-term care rating, we try to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.6 percent of its residents returning home.
