Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall rating, this facility received an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a nursing home. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Among its many dominant scores, this facility was given an excellent short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in that category. In computing our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
In the final category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our long-term care grade. This completed a very impressive profile. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.90941 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
