Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this place ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important area. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are with patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given a strong grade of A- in our long-term care area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.67742 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
In our last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for our short-term care rating. This topped off a very impressive profile. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
