Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for this area, which is one of our best grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without having access to the information regarding deficiencies for this facility, it was challenging to really grade it in this area.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also received favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a score of B. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. The nursing category is based on several subcategories, most of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
Our final area is short-term care, where we awarded this facility a C in that area. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for residents requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
