Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this area with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this facility a grade of B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our higher scores. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.411766 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
The next area we analyzed was nursing, ended up being this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. This was one of the few weak points in a strong report card. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. On top of its weak nursing hour totals, this facility also earned suboptimal marks in many of the quality-based metrics we considered in computing our nursing grades. We found that a higher percentage of this facility's residents experienced falls leading to major injury.
