Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Additionally, this facility also received favorable short-term care scores this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our better grades in that area, with a score of B. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care scores this year. Indeed, we awarded it one of our stronger grades in that category, with a grade of B. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Moving on to our fourth category, this facility was given a grade of C in nursing, which is a decent score. Our nursing score consists of several data points, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
