Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections are nearly flawless. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing score features numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades this year. Indeed, we awarded them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a grade of B. Our short-term care ratings are vital for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is long-term care. This facility received a very good long-term care grade this year, with a grade of C. Even though this is not nearly as elite as many of its other grades, this remains a decent rating for that area. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
