Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade is based on many components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a patient more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility performed well in our short-term care category. We gave them an elite score of A+ in this area. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered 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 facility's residents returned home.

Amazingly, we also awarded this nursing home yet another A+ in the area of inspections. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It doesn't appear that we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without having complete deficiency data for this nursing home, it was a challenge to really evaluate the place in this category.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was this nursing home's poorest area. Nevertheless, even its lowest point would be a strength for most nursing homes. We awarded it a strong grade of B for our long-term care category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
