Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to point out its nearly flawless inspections 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 these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this area. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.888885 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third highest category is its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Turning to the last category, we awarded this facility a grade of D for the area of nursing. This is the facility's worst category grade. Naturally, this score hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. There are a variety of data points within this grade. Many of these data points reflect levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
