Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among its many dominant scores, this facility received an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in that area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 85.454544 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of B-. This ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
