Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had too many deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. In spite of this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively favorable report.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable category is long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Another issue was the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is considered to be a meaningful measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. As you might expect, we discovered that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The last category we graded is nursing, in which this facility was given a very poor grade in this area as well. It received a lowly F for this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. Nursing grades are primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
