Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's volume of nursing care. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of short-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in this area. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The next area we assessed was nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area, which is certainly a major concern. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
