Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest scores in this area with an A+. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded an impressive grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in that category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. There are a variety of factors included in this grade. Many of the criteria relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last category, this nursing home really didn't perform well. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this was this nursing home's poorest grade. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With a score of this caliber for this category, we were not shocked to discover that this nursing home was below average in multiple staffing areas we assess. The facility offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.5 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
