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. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest category turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was awarded a B-. In crafting these long-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care scores are probably most important for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
Moving on to our final category, this facility really did not fare well. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is this facility's worst category. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses were with residents, in calculating our rating in this area. This facility averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
