Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk 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
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive short-term care score. In fact, short-term care turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. Short-term care grades are often employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. It does not look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, this facility also received favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we gave it one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B+. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer 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 a remarkably low figure.
The next category we scored is nursing. This facility received an above average nursing score this year, with a grade of C. Although this isn't nearly as elite as several of its other grades, this is nevertheless a decent grade in that area. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Finally, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.
