Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive grades. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
