Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out that this facility has received near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other strengths is its high-end long-term care grade. We gave them one of our most favorable grades in that category, with a score of A-. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.00166 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep 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.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given an impressive short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The next category we assessed is nursing. This nursing home received a very good nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of C. Although this was not nearly as impressive as a few of its other grades, this remains an acceptable grade in that area. When determining our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a resident even once per day.
