Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in this category with a grade of A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- in that category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was short-term care, which was this facility's weakest area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is clearly very concerning. In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.
