Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall rating, this facility also received an A+ inspection grade. This is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
An additional reason we assessed this facility so highly is that it received an A+ short-term care score. This is flat out as dominant as it gets in this area. Our short-term care ratings are vital for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
We also want to point out the fact that this nursing home was given a dominant grade of A in our long-term care area. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In our final category, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. This rounded out a very impressive profile. Nursing grades are largely based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
