When determining our nursing ratings, we assess both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
On the list of its many elite grades, this facility was awarded first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, it received a grade of A in that area. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning the page to our third category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for its short-term care grade. This is a very strong grade. With our short-term care score, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Finishing off this facility's impressive resume, we gave this facility an elite grade of A- for our inspections rating. With this score, the nursing home completes its straight A report card. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
