Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall score, this nursing home performed even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the nursing home's recent government inspections. We awarded it an A for that area, which is one of our highest grades. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. A deficiency-free inspection report is definitely the goal.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. The nursing grade is based on several components, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a strong short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is this nursing home's weakest area. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of B- for our long-term care category. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 76.100624 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
