Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this category with an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. This is certainly an excellent sign for the quality of care at this nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
The next highest area we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest area was its long-term care score, where it was given a C. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.87324 percent of its residents, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place was able to keep its residents 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.
The final category we assessed is nursing. We gave it an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is obviously a significant disappointment. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
