Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out that this facility earned near flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received a impressive long-term care grade. Indeed, this turned out to be this facility's second best category score. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also fared very well in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes received a better grade in this area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services To offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
In the final category, we awarded this facility an A+ for its nursing rating. This finished off a very impressive report card. There are many criteria included in this area. Many of the data points reflect nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
