Registered Staff Hours
In addition to earning a strong overall rating, this facility fared even better in our inspections category which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We awarded it an A+ for this area, which is one of our best grades. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home performed well in the category of long-term care. As a result, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.79339 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, 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 is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. With our short-term care rating, we try to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
Switching gears to our fourth category, we gave this facility a grade of D for our nursing category. This is the nursing home's least impressive category score. Naturally, this grade hurt the facility's overall profile to some degree. Our nursing grade weighs quite a few components, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home averaged a meager 0.6 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This number is quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
