Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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 an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this facility a grade of A- in that area. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. We gave this facility an impressive grade of D. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated was short-term care, which was this facility's weakest category. It received an F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. Short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 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.
