Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.431816 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving patients more often.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest category was short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this facility's case, we found that it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
