Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home earned a decent overall score, its inspections score is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it earned a strong score in that category with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. In computing a facility's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of skill of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next most favorable area was short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. In forming our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was long-term care, which is this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable percentage. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
