Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it an impressive grade of A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A- for our long-term care score. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care. We gave this facility a decent score in that area, with a B-. Although this isn't on par with many of this facility's other grades, it is still not a bad grade. Our short-term care grade is often used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
