Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded impressive marks in the area of long-term care as well. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a score of A-. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving residents even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of C. This actually was this nursing home's weakest area. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. We were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
