Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

In determining these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores.

While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The last area we analyzed is nursing. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at.
