Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in this area with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was awarded favorable long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a B+. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care, which is this nursing home's worst category. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is clearly a major disappointment. In calculating our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
