Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility earned near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its first-rate resume, this nursing home also was awarded a superb long-term care grade, with a score of A. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.69136 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a B. Believe it or not, this was this facility's weakest category. A nursing home is doing something right when it's lowest score still is superior to most other facilities. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
