Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it was given a dominant long-term care score. In fact, long-term care is its second highest category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 88.41699 percent of its patients. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more critical for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Moving on to the next area, this facility was given a grade of C for nursing, which we consider to be a decent rating. There are a variety of criteria included in this area. Many of these data points reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
