Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable area was its long-term care score, where it received a B-. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the quantity of services offered by a facility, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. There are several subcategories included in this area. Many of these datapoints reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next category, we awarded this nursing home a D in our short-term care category. This was the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Unfortunately, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. It appears that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing metrics we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
