Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for this category, which is one of our best grades. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B. The nursing score weighs numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This nursing home vaccinated 97.55102 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility was awarded a B- in short-term care, which is generally a respectable rating. In crafting our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
