Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a positive score in long-term care. This facility received a B+ in this area, which happens to be one of our higher grades. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 90.05305 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's next highest category was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It looks like this nursing home was below average in several staffing areas we focus on. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
Turning to our final area, this nursing home didn't fare very well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this was its worst area. There are quite a few criteria included in this area. Most of the data points are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
