Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our higher grades. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.59091 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. Short-term care ratings are important for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
The next category we scored is nursing. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. We analyzed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
