Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our better grades. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Short-term care scores are important for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The next area we looked at is nursing. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is a poor grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our nursing score features many subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This number is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
