Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not 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
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+ in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.16714 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. We weighed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this category. 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. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of D in short-term care, rendering this the facility's worst grade. In forming these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We found that this nursing home was below average in many staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
