Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with an A. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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 still had a generally positive view of this facility's inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a positive score in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B in that category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.69512 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's next best score was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. In our short-term care rating, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
This nursing home's weakest category is nursing, which is the last category we assessed. For this area, we gave this facility a D. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
