Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place really excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Not many facilities performed better in that category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a score of A- for our long-term care grade. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably 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 C in this category is by no means a bad score. Our nursing grade weighs a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this statistic. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning patients even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is short-term care, turned out to be this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in this area. This really was one of just a few dings on an otherwise strong report card. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we discovered that this place provides fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
