Registered Staff Hours
It should also be noted that this nursing home's inspection score outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ for its inspections rating, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. 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. Based on this, we had positive view of this nursing home's inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care rating turns out to be one of its best features. The facility was awarded a B- in this area. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing score looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our last area, we awarded this facility a D for long-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 99.06542 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
