Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care score. In that area, we gave this facility an A. Our short-term care grades are probably more important for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are with residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. It received one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
In the final category we rated, this facility received a very favorable grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home rounded out a very impressive profile. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.411766 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
