Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best area was its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of just D. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 81.818184 percent of its patients. This is many points below what we expected. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
