Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also want to point out that this facility was awarded a great long-term care score. In fact, we gave it one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A-. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 67.19576 percent of its patients, which is somewhat less than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

The next area we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home's score lagged a well behind as some of its other scores. In that area, we awarded this facility an F. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
The next category we graded was nursing, which is this facility's worst area. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is certainly a major concern. When determining our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This particular facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This number is far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
