Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk 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
This nursing home also fared well in the area of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a score of A for that area, which happens to be one of our best grades. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility also earned a strong nursing grade. We gave it an above average grade of F in this area. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are with residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this nursing home did not perform very well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this was this nursing home's worst area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
