Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also would like to point out that this facility was awarded positive long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in this area, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the facility's second best score. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.451614 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most important for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
The final area we analyzed is nursing, which ended up being this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in that category. Of course, this score pulled down the facility's overall profile to some degree. The nursing category includes a handful of subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
