Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
The next best area we gave this facility in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In our long-term care score, we assess the quantity of care provided by a nursing home, along with a handful of qualitative statistics. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 99.56332 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility was below average in two of the key staffing figures we looked at. The facility supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The final area we scored is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal score. We looked at the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our rating in this category. With only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
