Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well overall, this nursing home also earned nearly flawless government inspections. Consequently, it earned one of our best scores in that area with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its high-end profile, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Adding to its high-end assessment, this facility also was given a superb long-term care grade, with a grade of A-. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 68.42105 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Moving on to the next area, this nursing home also performed admirably in our nursing category. We gave it a B+ for that area. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. The nursing rating weighs quite a few data points, however, the main one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
