Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It does not appear that we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
An additional strength of this facility is its first-rate grade in long-term care. We awarded them one of our best grades in that category, with a grade of A-. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care grade turns out to be one of its most concerning features. Sadly, the nursing home was awarded an F in this area. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Moving on to the final area, this facility didn't perform well. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this was this nursing home's poorest area. Our nursing grade is based on many data points. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.4 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 computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
