Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive inspection rating. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In this category, we awarded it an A-. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.66888 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is a fair grade in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
