Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility an impressive grade in long-term care. This facility received a grade of B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our more impressive grades. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. 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
Another issue was the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This category is generally a fair assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.4 percent of its residents returning home.
The next area we assessed is nursing. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
