Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this area. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its impressive profile, this facility also excelled in our short-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for the area. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

This facility also was dominant in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Very few facilities fared better in this area.

In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.60239 percent of its residents, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Moving on to the fourth category, this facility was given a high-end nursing score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in that area, rounding out a straight A profile. The nursing score assesses several data points, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
