Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we rated this facility so well is that it was given a strong long-term care score. Indeed, long-term care is its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 87.28813 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This facility was awarded a favorable short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The next area we graded was nursing. We awarded this facility a D in nursing, making this the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Nursing scores are tied to nurse staffing levels. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
