Registered Staff Hours
While this facility received a decent overall rating, its inspections grade is notably more impressive than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received a strong score in that category with a B. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive scores. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the senior population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road grade in the category of short-term care, where it received a C. With our short-term care grade, we seek to forge a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The next area we analyzed was nursing, which ended up being a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our nursing category. Nursing grades are mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This statistic is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at a few quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home was above average in two of the metrics we focus on, with solid scores for avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
