Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place is a quality facility is that it received an impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In that area, we awarded it an A+. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility is also strong in the category of long-term care, where it was given a score of B. It outpaced most facilities in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. 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 only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home was awarded an impressive short-term care grade, with a B in this category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home was given a C in nursing, which is a decent score. In determining our nursing grades, we analyze both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
