Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had favorable view of this facility's recent inspections.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an C. The nursing rating is based on many factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. On top of ranking poorly in terms of nursing hours offered, this place also lagged behind in certain datapoints that are tied to quality of care. This facility's nursing score was hurt by poor performance in the area of minimizing pressure ulcers. We found that 18.8 percent of this nursing home's patients sustained pressure ulcers. This is more than double the national average.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a decent score in the area of short-term care, with a grade of C. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 39.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was long-term care, which was this facility's weakest category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 97.87234 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 2.21 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is far less impressive than its vaccination record.
