Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a first rate facility overall, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Very few nursing homes fared as well in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another reason we assessed this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ long-term care score. This is just about as good as it gets in this category. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.79412 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Building on its strong resume, this facility also was given a dominant short-term care score, with a grade of A. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
In our last area, this facility also was given an excellent nursing rating, with a grade of A-. This topped off a rare straight A report card. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This nursing home averages 0.5 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
