Registered Staff Hours
It should also be noted that this facility's nursing score outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ for its nursing score. In determining our nursing grades, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
The third most favorable category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In calculating our long-term care scores, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living received by the nursing home's patients. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home vaccinated only 60.36036 percent of its patients, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Moving on the last category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We gave this facility a D in this category, which is a very poor grade. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. You should be more cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines in recent years of over $50,000. This generally suggests that government inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of bad inspections.
