Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 76.07655 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we expected but still a respectable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility's was given an abysmal short-term care grade where it received an F. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its weak score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
The last category we graded was nursing, which was this facility's worst area. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is clearly a major concern. In computing our nursing grades, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
