Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving patients at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our final area, this nursing home was given a grade of C in short-term care, which is a respectable score. Our short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
