Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received an A. We looked at the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in calculating our rating in this category. With 4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility was above the national average. Lastly, this facility also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided with better nursing care and having a policy of regularly turning residents to avoid bed sores.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. While we determined this facility has an impressive amount of nursing care provided by nurses and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be somewhat below average. It administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 86.90476 percent of its patients. This is one figure we would really like to see this facility improve. Fortunately, this place excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.13 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a significantly lower hospitalization rate than the majority of nursing homes.

This facility earned a very good inspection report this year as well. For this reason, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a B. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care. This facility was given a B- in the area. Short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 40.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
