Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality facility overall, this place especially excelled in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A. Few facilities fared better in that area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a strong long-term care grade. In fact, long-term care ended up being its second best category score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 70.83333 percent of its patients. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find facility 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 number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most critical for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The next area we assessed is nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is certainly somewhat concerning. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This particular place provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This statistic is well below average. Unfortunately, this place also did not fare as well as we had hoped in some of the quality measures we assessed for this category.
