Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. 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 a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.
The second highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category came in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a C. For residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was short-term care, which ended up being this facility's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more meaningful for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade in this range in this area, we weren't stunned to discover this place was well below average in several staffing metrics we assess. The nursing home provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its patients returning home.
