Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility received even higher marks in nursing. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient even once per day.
Turning to another one of this facility's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. We awarded this nursing home an B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a favorable short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this category. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information 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 that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we rated is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in that category. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing or medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.26028 percent of its patients. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
