Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.62963 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of D in the area of short-term care, making this its weakest area. Our short-term care grades are probably most important for folks in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we found that it provided less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
