Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection scores are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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
Another one of this facility's higher category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 85.93103 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we were hoping for. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. We looked at the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care, proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. This really is one of the couple of weak links of a very solid report card. Short-term care scores are critical for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
