Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat 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 fared well in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- for that category, which is one of our most impressive grades. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.261086 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of components, however, the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This was this facility's worst category. Short-term care grades are often used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
