Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. 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. Even with this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively favorable report.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a favorable score in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 94.48052 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Our next category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home received an F. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Turning to the last area, this nursing home really did not fare well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. When computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This place averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
