Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also want to emphasize the fact that this facility was awarded a top-shelf score of A in our long-term care area. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This nursing home also was dominant in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Very few facilities fared better in this area. In calculating these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
In our final category, we gave this facility a grade of A for our nursing grade. This completed an elite report card. There are a number of factors within this area. Most of the data points relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
