Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's better category grades came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second lowest score was short-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a well below average grade. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home did not perform very well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is this nursing home's worst area. Our nursing score assesses several data points, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. 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 determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
