Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies 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
This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, with an elite grade of A- in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 94.44444 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, we gave this nursing home a D for the area of short-term care. This is the facility's worst category grade. Naturally, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is more often than not a solid assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
