Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A. Not many facilities fared better in that area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to this nursing home's list of accomplishments, it also was awarded a high-end short-term care score. We gave them an elite grade of A- in this area. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given an impressive long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.04878 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The final area we rated is nursing, where this nursing home was awarded a C. This is this nursing home's worst area. This is still nothing to be ashamed of. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a resident at least once a day.
