Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning residents at least once a day.

In addition, this nursing home also was awarded favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a score of B. Short-term care ratings are crucial for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable long-term care grade this year, with a grade of B-. Although this was not as impressive as a few of its other grades, this is still a respectable score for that category. In the category of long-term care, we assess the amount of care provided by a nursing home, rather than more medically-intensive services. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
