Registered Staff Hours
We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection rating exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.47644 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing grade considers a number of datapoints. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care. This facility received a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. It does not appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
