Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for the area of inspections. Inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as 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 health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, this facility also was given favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we gave it one of our stronger scores in that category, with a grade of B+. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 76.50602 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. The nursing rating is based on a number of datapoints. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is not a bad grade in this area. Short-term care grades are generally employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
