Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Not many nursing homes performed more favorably in this category. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 71.55963 percent of its residents, which is slightly less than we anticipated. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Next we looked at nursing grades, where this nursing home received an F, which is a rock bottom grade. This area was definitely not a strength for this facility. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses commit to patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is obviously a significant concern. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most critical for residents requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
