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. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be 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
This facility also was elite in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Not many nursing homes received a better grade in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.68944 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

The nursing category analyzes several components, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a decent grade of B-. This ended up being this nursing home's worst area. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
