Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this proved to be a decent facility is it received a very favorable inspection grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent score in the area of long-term care, with a grade of B-. With our long-term care grade, we assess the volume of services provided by a nursing home, along with some quality datapoints. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.77801 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility was given a grade of C for this area. In our short-term care rating, we seek to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
