Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 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 nursing home 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.

This facility's third highest area turned out to be its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the last category, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of C. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
