Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home 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 scores in that category with an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
This facility performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is one of our highest scores. There are numerous criteria within this grade. Most of the datapoints relate to staffing levels. 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. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its next highest category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this area, which is an acceptable grade. With our long-term care score, we focus more on the volume of care provided by a nursing home, along with a handful of qualitative datapoints. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care, which is this nursing home's worst area. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is certainly a major concern. Short-term care scores are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility 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 sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
