Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it earned an A+ in short-term care. In forming these short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A. In determining our nursing grades, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at turned out to be this nursing home's poorest area. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it a respectable grade of C in our long-term care category. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
