Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility 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+. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it was awarded a very impressive long-term care grade. In fact, long-term care ended up being its second most favorable category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.46809 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

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 C in this category is by no means a bad score. Nursing grades are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care, which is this facility's weakest area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is certainly a bit of a disappointment. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
