Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave it a very strong long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nursing grades are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning residents even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a D in the area of short-term care, rendering this the nursing home's worst grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is more often than not a fair measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its residents returning home.
