Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than the facility's overall grade. Inspection ratings are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of C in this category. Nursing grades are largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed.

Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a respectable score in the category of long-term care, with a grade of C. Our long-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of nursing care. This means a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 95.20295 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable datapoint. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. With our short-term care score, we seek to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we weren't stunned to find that this place was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we looked at. It offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 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 score.
