Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in inspections, which is based on the facility's inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was strong in the category of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Not many nursing homes received a better grade in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.59485 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning to the next category, this nursing home received a strong nursing rating. While this is not nearly as elite as some of its other grades, this is still one of the better scores a facility can receive. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as good measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
