Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. The nursing score consists of several components, however, the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality
Building on its remarkable resume, this facility also was given a strong long-term care score, with a grade of A. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. After considering the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.05195 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Finally, this nursing home also received excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in the area of inspections, with an elite grade of A. Few other facilities earned an A- or better in every single category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
