Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this facility so favorably is that it was given a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 60.31746 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a few points less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility received its third best category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category, which is a respectable grade. Short-term care grades are often used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final area we looked at was nursing. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Nursing ratings are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a patient at least once a day.
