Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving an elite overall rating, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection rating. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given an A+ for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home 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 datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 7.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

We also awarded this facility a of A+ for its long-term care grade. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last area we graded was nursing. We awarded them another impressive grade of A+ in this category. This finalized a spectacular report card of all A+'s. In determining our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
