Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong facility overall, this facility especially excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it was given a strong short-term care score. In fact, short-term care is its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a score of A. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. This place provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we looked at. This is a great sign. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Virginia in this area with 67.3 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing grade includes quite a few factors, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This place provided just 2.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a relatively low figure. Nevertheless, more than a quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. This is a high ratio of skilled nursing care, which we weight more heavily in our nursing grades. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Although this place did not have as many nursing hours as many other facilities we looked at, it was still better than average in the area of preventing falls. This is often an indicator of how carefully a facility's nursing staff is tending to its patients. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth category, this facility did not fare well. With an abysmal grade of F in that category, this was obviously this facility's weakest grade. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 92.083336 percent of its residents, which is a few points lower than we anticipated. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
