Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with a grade of A. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's higher category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B. It actually performed better than most facilities in this category. Short-term care ratings are critical for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our better scores. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.646645 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The next area we assessed is nursing. We awarded this facility a D for nursing, making this the nursing home's least impressive category. The nursing grade analyzes many factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This statistic is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
