Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall score. Inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider 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 always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received high marks in the area of long-term care, with a superb score of A- in this category. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 80.50542 percent of its residents, which is a few points below what we expected. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This particular place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive area was short-term care, which is the last category we assessed. It received a lowly F for this area. In spite of some respectable grades in other categories, this grade is still of a concern so we wanted to point it out. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we weren't surprised to find that this facility was well below average in many staffing areas we focus on. The nursing home supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
