We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's top score. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels.

Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores came in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
This facility's inspection grade also was quite a bit better than its overall grade. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Based on this, we had favorable view of this nursing home's recent inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We weren't able to locate this place's vaccination data. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
