Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in this area with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an C. There are a number of subcategories within this category. Most of these factors are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality
The next highest area we gave this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is short-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this facility provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
