Registered Staff Hours
On top of earning a great overall rating, this nursing home performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that area, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded a favorable long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. For residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 66.447365 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Turning to our next category, this nursing home also earned a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
The next category we rated was nursing. For that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our nursing score includes several subcategories, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
