Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also earned top notch health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in this category, with an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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 some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our stronger grades in that area, with a score of B+. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most meaningful for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Switching gears to our fourth area, this facility was awarded a respectable long-term care score. While this was not nearly as good as some of its other category grades, this is truly not a major area of concern. Long-term care scores are crucial for individuals requiring personal care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
