Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest scores in this category with an A-. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
The second highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing rating assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This place averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, while this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a decent grade in the area of short-term care, with a B-. Our short-term care scores are likely most meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that category. With our long-term care rating, we analyze the amount of care provided by a facility, as well as a series of qualitative statistics. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 69.58175 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
