Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a strong nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. A deficiency-free inspection report is what we look for.
Short-term Care Quality
The second most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facilities next best category was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. Our long-term care grade is often used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Our last area is nursing, where we awarded this facility a C in that area. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic.
