Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with an A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its second highest category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is generally a reliable assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

This nursing home administered the vaccine to 95.19231 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores.
