Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this nursing home's recent inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its next highest category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Long-term care grades are essential for residents seeking personal care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 96.9697 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. We weighed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a poor grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.7 percent of its residents returning home.
