Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In this category, we awarded this facility an A. In computing our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
We also wanted to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an B+ in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a score of B+. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home received a B+. This rounded out a first-rate profile. Only a select few nursing homes earned a B+ or higher in every single category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 90.69767 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
