Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is really what you want to see on an inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category scores was in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.28825 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. The nursing rating assesses many datapoints, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is short-term care. This facility was awarded a grade of C for the area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
