Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this area with a grade of A+. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area tend to have few 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 always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. It actually fared better than most facilities in this category. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.12663 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. The nursing grade weighs several subcategories. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the final area, this nursing home didn't perform very well. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this was this nursing home's weakest area. In computing our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Based on its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this place is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
