Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This is far better than the facility's overall grade. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is definitely a great sign for this nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's better category grades came in the area of long-term care. This wound up being its second best category. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 99.41521 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's worst area was short-term care, which is the last category we assessed. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of D. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this facility provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
