Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a strong grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this area, which happens to be one of our more impressive grades. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed was short-term care, where this facility received a B- in this category. In crafting our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. We were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
The final category we graded was nursing. We gave it a C in that area. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. Our nursing score analyzes many components, however, the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
