Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in this category with an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. There are a number of datapoints included in this category. Many of the datapoints are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this category. Our short-term care grades are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 3.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is long-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. This really was one of the few weak links of a very solid profile. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.4359 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
