Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of A-. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, we awarded this facility a grade of A- in that category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we try to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
The last category we analyzed is nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously concerning. In computing our nursing grades, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
