Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
The second best category we gave this facility in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Long-term care ratings are vital for people seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated only 79.60954 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we assessed was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given an F. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
The next area we analyzed is nursing. It received an F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is clearly a significant disappointment. Nursing ratings are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
