When calculating our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also excelled in the category of short-term care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. In computing these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

Moving on to our inspection category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D, which was not one of this place's better grades. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's inspection reports. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. You should be more cautious when considering a facility that has severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This facility was assessed several category G through L deficiencies, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies identified by inspectors had the potential to cause actual harm to patients. Finally, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to over $100,000. This typically indicates that a bad track record spanned multiple years.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth area, we gave this nursing home a D for our long-term care category. This was the facility's weakest category grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 83.823524 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
