Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this category. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was elite in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Only a select group of facilities fared better in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing rating weighs numerous factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our last area, this facility also excelled in the long-term care category. We gave it an A- in this category. This wrapped up a straight A profile. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 91.26637 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. 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 less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
