Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was given a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B+. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a favorable short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this area. In calculating these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
The next category we looked at is nursing, where this facility was given a grade of C. Although this wound up being its weakest category grade, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
