Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded high scores in the area of long-term care as well. In fact, we gave it one of our highest scores in that area with a area of A. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 94.054054 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of C. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
The final category we rated was nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. Naturally, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile a bit. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
