Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a positive grade in long-term care. This facility received a grade of B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our more impressive grades. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this nursing home 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

The last area we analyzed is short-term care. We gave this facility a D in short-term care, rendering this its weakest category. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is often a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we learned that this place provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
