Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave it an impressive grade of A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. It doesn't look like we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We would like to have more data for this facility. Without the information regarding deficiencies, it was challenging to grade this facility in terms of this category.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A-. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Virginia in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving a patient at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its third best category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category, which is a decent score. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category is long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
