Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't 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.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility was awarded an impressive grade of A- in our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are often employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. 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 they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 91.32948 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final area we scored is nursing, where this facility was given a B+. This rounded out a first-rate profile. Few nursing homes received a B+ or better in every single category. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades.
