Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its great overall score, we gave this facility a grade of A for inspections. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also want to note the fact that this facility received a dominant grade of A in our long-term care area. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our more positive scores in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
The last area we graded was nursing, in which this nursing home was awarded a B. This actually was this nursing home's worst category. A nursing home is doing something right when it's worst score still beats out most other nursing homes. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a nursing home's 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 nursing home 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
