Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few places performed this well in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

With our long-term care category, we assess the quantity of services provided by a facility, along with a series of quality datapoints. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final category we scored was nursing, where this facility received a B-. This actually ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. This is still not a poor grade. The nursing rating weighs a number of data points. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility 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. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
