Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than its overall score. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. It actually outpaced most facilities in this category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 64.78261 percent of its patients. This is somewhat below what we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In computing a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses are with patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is short-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of 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 final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
