Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it earned a very impressive long-term care score. In fact, long-term care was its best category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the facility's recent inspections. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. There are a number of datapoints included in this grade. Most of the factors are tied to staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category is short-term care, which is the last category we scored. For this area, we gave this facility a grade of D. Short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this facility offers fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
