Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility 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 highest grades in this category with a grade of A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second best category is long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Our long-term care grades are critical for prospective residents seeking personal care. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.34984 percent of its patients, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is short-term care, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. This really was one of just a couple of dings of a quality profile. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. It looks like this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
