Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely dodged the more 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. Based on this, we still had favorable view of this facility's recent inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility received its next best category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category, which is a respectable score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 71.55172 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final area we analyzed is nursing, turned out to be this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. Nursing grades are mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
