Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received first-rate health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in that category, with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.
This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category.

Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In our short-term care score, we try to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
