Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a grade of A+ for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, this nursing home received a very strong long-term care rating. In fact, we awarded it a B+ in this category, rounding out one of our more impressive report cards. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 92.98245 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
