Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
We also wanted to point out that this facility received an impressive grade of B in the area of nursing. Our nursing grade is mostly based on the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality
The next highest area we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in that category. Our long-term care grade focuses on a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 84.95575 percent of its residents against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
