Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility an impressive score in long-term care. This facility received a grade of B in this area, which is one of our more favorable grades. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.4127 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. The nursing grade consists of a handful of components, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is obviously a significant concern. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With a score in this range in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home was below average in several staffing areas we looked at. It supplied substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
