Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility earned even higher grades in long-term care. In fact, it earned one of our best scores in that area with an A. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. 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 an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B- in this category. In our short-term care score, we try to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The final area we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area. There are many data points within this grade. Many of the data points reflect levels of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
