Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Even with this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive report.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 94.94471 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are probably most meaningful for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this category, we were not surprised to learn this facility was well below average in two of the key staffing figures we focus on. In fact, it offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
The last category we analyzed was nursing, where this facility received a poor score in this area also. We gave it an F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our nursing rating features several data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
