Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category is long-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road score in this area. In forming these long-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.414345 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable datapoint. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category was short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The next category we looked at is nursing, which proved to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for nursing. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular facility offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This statistic is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
