Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received impressive short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more impressive grades in this category, with a B+. This proved to be the facility's second strongest score. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second least favorable score was long-term care, where it received just a D in that area. This is a well below average score. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.58065 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Turning to our next area, we awarded this facility a grade of D in our nursing category. This was the facility's weakest category grade. Unfortunately, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. The nursing grade is based on many subcategories. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This particular place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is far below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
