Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this category with a grade of A-. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that 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. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's higher category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually performed better than most facilities in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of subcategories, but the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for people in need of more conventional assistance related to activities of daily living. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.36449 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
