Registered Staff Hours
To go along with a strong overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A for inspections. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning our third area, we gave this nursing home a score of A for our short-term care rating. This is a superb score. Our short-term care grades are presumably more critical for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. 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.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is long-term care, where this facility received an A. This completed a first-rate report card. Very few nursing homes earned an A- or better in all four categories. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.25842 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
