Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with an A+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to point out that this facility received strong long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the facility's second best grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 96.51899 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility ended up receiving a bottom of the barrel grade in our short-term care area. It received an F in this category. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average nursing home. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.5 percent of its residents returning home.
The last area we graded was nursing. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is clearly a significant concern. Nursing scores are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
