Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless government inspections recently. We awarded them an A+ in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving patients more often.

In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a solid score in that category, with a B-. Although this isn't as high as many of its other scores, it is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. In determining our long-term care grades, we look at the personal care received by a facility's residents. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 93.00226 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we expected but still a decent percentage. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
