Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out that this facility has received near flawless inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this area. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable short-term care scores this year. Indeed, we awarded them one of our higher grades in that category, with a score of B+. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Our nursing grade includes several datapoints, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated ended up being this facility's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it an acceptable grade of B- in long-term care. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's personal care instead of the skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
