Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection scores are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. It does not appear that we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more information about this facility. Without having deficiency data, it ended up being a challenge to fully assess this facility in the inspections category.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this nursing home received superb marks in the area of short-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our highest scores in that category with a score of A+. In calculating our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was long-term care, where this facility received a grade of A. This rounded out a very strong report card. Few facilities earned an A- or higher in every single category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 94.80519 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
