Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a positive score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B in that area. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.42105 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of C in this area. In determining these short-term care scores, 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. Our goal is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last area we rated was nursing, which turned out to be this facility's worst category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that category. Unfortunately, this score hurt the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. With a meager 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
