Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent facility is that it received a favorable inspection grade. In this area, we gave this facility a B+. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. There are a number of criteria within this area. Many of the criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our better grades. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.95539 percent of its residents, which is far higher than most nursing homes. 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 less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Our final area is short-term care, in which we awarded this facility a C in that area. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most important for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
