Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other strengths is its top-shelf long-term care grade. We awarded them one of our most favorable grades in that area, with a grade of A-. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.03614 percent of its residents, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care grades are probably most critical for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
