Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for the area of inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility performed well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of A- for that area, which is one of our best grades. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 82.23684 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this place 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 one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
The last category we scored is nursing, which is this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. Of course, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. We analyzed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our rating in this category. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
