Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. 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.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an A. The nursing grade considers many subcategories. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on our next category, this nursing home was awarded a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.57143 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of A-. This finished off a very impressive report card. Not many nursing homes received an A- or better in in each area we assessed. In our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
