Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is definitely an excellent sign for the quality of care at this facility.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our better scores. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 85.9375 percent of its patients. This is a few points below what we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. The last statistic we assessed was the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 2.84 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this admittedly wasn't as strong as some of its other scores in this area, this figure can be skewed for some facilities based on some of the medical complexity of residents.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing category assesses a handful of subcategories, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place was above average in two of the major datapoints we considered, with solid marks for avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are often reliable measures of the quality of nursing care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is short-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst area. It received an F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. Short-term care ratings are important for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
