Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this facility also received favorable short-term care scores this year. Indeed, we awarded it one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a grade of B. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its next best category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.14815 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final category we looked at was nursing. For that category, we awarded this facility a C. When computing our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents even once per day.
