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.

This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 63.333336 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points below what we were hoping for but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Turning to our next area, this nursing home was awarded a strong nursing rating. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in that category, rounding out one of our finer profiles.
