Registered Staff Hours

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded impressive scores in the area of short-term care as well. In fact, it received one of our most elite grades in that area with a area of A. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given strong grades in the category of long-term care also. Indeed, it received one of our strongest scores in that category with a score of A. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Turning our last category, inspections proved to be this facility's weakest link. It earned a grade of C in this area. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's inspection reports. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies 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.
