Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well overall, this facility earned nearly flawless government inspections. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so favorably is that it was awarded a dominant long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second most favorable category score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a score of A-. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. The nursing grade features a host of datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a resident more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home received a B-. This actually was this facility's weakest category. This is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most important for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
