Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with an A+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk 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 nursing home also received a strong long-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we gave them a grade of B in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 85.79881 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we expected but still a decent figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing rating. We gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our final area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Of course, this score pulled down the facility's overall profile to some degree. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the staffing figures we considered. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
