Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of subcategories, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its fine profile, this facility also was given a dominant short-term care grade, with a grade of A. In crafting these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item 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 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Turning to another of this facility's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B-. Even though this is its poorest category grade, this is nevertheless not a terrible score. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
