Registered Staff Hours
On top of earning a strong overall rating, this nursing home fared even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the facility's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for this area, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor dings are not the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. In determining our nursing scores, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Virginia in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our next category, this facility also earned a score of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.206345 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, we gave this nursing home a D in short-term care. This is the facility's worst category score. Unfortunately, this score pulled down the facility's overall grade a bit. In our short-term care score, we attempt to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It appears that this nursing home was subpar in the two key staffing metrics we focus on. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
