Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. This is a much better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.52941 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The last category we scored was nursing, turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a D in that category. This is one of just a few weak links on a strong report card. Our nursing score consists of several components, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
