Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of A. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a 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
We also awarded this facility a favorable score in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our higher scores. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.94598 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home's received a rock-bottom short-term care score where it received a lowly F. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The final category we graded was nursing, which is this nursing home's worst category. We gave it an F for this category, which is certainly a major concern. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
