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.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its elite resume, this facility also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in the category. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. 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 residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our higher scores in our long-term care category as well, with a B+. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 91.58249 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In our last category, we awarded this facility a A+ for its nursing score. This topped off a very favorable report card. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
