Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility also received top notch government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in this area, with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's impressive category scores came in the category of long-term care. We gave them one of our more positive grades in that area, with a score of B. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98.6532 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning residents at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
Our next category is short-term care, in which we awarded this facility a grade of B- in that area. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is often a solid assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
