Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next best category was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is typically a useful measure of the facility's rehabilitation. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category was long-term care, which is the last category we looked at. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category. In spite of some decent scores in other categories, this score is still of a concern so we felt obligated to draw your attention to it. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.5338 percent of its patients, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
