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 take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk 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
Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it received an above average long-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category is short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is basically a slightly below average score in this area. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
The next category we graded is nursing. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. You shouldn't necessarily disregard a facility because of one terrible score though. There are a host of criteria within this grade. Most of these factors relate to staffing levels. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
