Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another strength of this nursing home is its first-rate grade in long-term care. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a score of A-. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.05956 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a dangerous ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. 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 less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this facility an impressive grade of D. We weighed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in determining our rating in this category. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this facility really did not fare very well. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this was this facility's poorest category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This score is generally a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the staffing figures we assessed. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
