Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. It doesn't look like we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without having access to all of the deficiency related data, it is challenging to grade the place in this category.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also would like to note that this nursing home was given strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's second strongest score. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home ended up receiving a rock-bottom score in our short-term care area. It was given a lowly F in this area. Short-term care grades are often employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. As you might expect, we learned that this nursing home provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
The next category we rated was nursing, in which this facility received a bottom of the barrel grade here as well. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is significantly below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
