Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this proved to be a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care grade. In fact, short-term care is its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an A. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
In addition, this nursing home also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the facility's inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. The nursing rating weighs many datapoints. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 nursing home the country 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 by employing a policy of turning a patient at least once a day.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth area, this facility really did not perform very well. With a rock bottom grade of F in this area, this was notably this nursing home's weakest category grade. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
