To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are 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 health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home fared well in the category of long-term care. As a result, we awarded it a score of A for that area, which is one of our most elite grades. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

Does this page answer your questions about Grace Care Center of Olney?
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. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is short-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is certainly somewhat concerning. Short-term care ratings are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations 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 datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
