Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, we gave this nursing home a score of A- in that category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is not a score to write home about. In crafting these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
This nursing home's weakest area is nursing, which is the last area we analyzed. For this area, we gave this facility a D. Nursing grades are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
