Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other achievements is its dominant long-term care score. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a score of A. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also was awarded favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a score of B. Our short-term care grades are critical for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It does not appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was given a respectable nursing grade. Even though this wasn't nearly as elite as many of its other scores, this is truly not a poor grade. Our nursing rating considers a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.
