Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. 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 facility also was awarded a favorable score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B+ in that area. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 94.852936 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital.

In this process, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final area we scored was nursing, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. This really is one of the couple of weak links on a quality report card. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores.
