Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also performed well in the category of long-term care, with a superb grade of A- in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 85.47486 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat less than we expected but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

The next area we looked at was nursing, where we gave this facility an F. This was definitely one of this facility's major weaknesses. The nursing grade is based on a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final area we looked at. It received an F in this category. Despite several acceptable grades in other categories, this grade is still concerning so we felt obligated to make sure you are aware. In calculating these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. With a score in this range in this category, we weren't stunned to find this place was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we assess. In fact, it provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
