Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes performed this well in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. 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
This nursing home performed well in the category of long-term care. As a result, we awarded it a score of A for that category, which turns out to be one of our most elite grades. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.11504 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. The nursing score includes a handful of subcategories, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth category, this facility was given a decent short-term care grade. While this is not nearly as elite as a few of its other scores, this is really not a poor grade. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
