Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without complete deficiency related data for this facility, it is difficult to grade it in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its impressive accomplishments in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Additionally, this facility also was given favorable long-term care grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in that area, with a grade of B. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The next category we scored is nursing, in which this nursing home received a grade of B-. This was this facility's weakest category. This is nevertheless not a poor grade. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a resident more frequently.
