Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it an impressive grade of A in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's quality category grades came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a score of B+. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 74.28571 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a decent grade of B-. In our short-term care grade, we seek to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Turning to the last category, this nursing home was given a decent nursing grade of C. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory.
