Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far better than its overall grade. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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. Based on this, we had favorable view of this facility's inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was given its second best category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a decent score. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for residents requiring more traditional assistance associated with personal care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 99.86413 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we graded was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of C. Short-term care grades are typically employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
The last area we assessed is nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave it an F in this area, which is certainly a major concern. There are numerous factors within this area. Most of these criteria are tied to staffing levels. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. In addition to its weak nursing hour totals, this place also earned suboptimal marks in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We found that more of this place's residents experienced falls leading to serious injury. We would argue that many falls could likely be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic contributed to this facility receiving a poor nursing grade.
