Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility also received first-rate inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best scores in that area, with an A. Our inspection grades are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the category of short-term care. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B+. In our short-term care category, we seek to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. The nursing score weighs many factors, however, the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning a resident at least once a day.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, this facility received a grade of C in long-term care, which is a decent score. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
