Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong nursing home overall, this facility especially excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate 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
This nursing home performed well in the category of long-term care. As a result, we gave it a grade of A- for that area, which turns out to be one of our most impressive grades. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable area was its short-term care grade, where it received a B-. In our short-term care score, we try to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
Moving on to our last category, we awarded this facility a grade of D in the area of nursing. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Of course, this category pulled down the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. The nursing rating considers many data points. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
