Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this facility a score of A in that area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this facility an impressive grade of D. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care. We gave it an F in this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our short-term care grade is often used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
