Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall rating, this facility also received an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a nursing home. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.
Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing score is mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a dominant short-term care grade. Indeed, this ended up being its third most impressive category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A-. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility'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 has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was long-term care, in which this facility was given a B-. Even though this proved to be its weakest category grade, this is still not a major area of concern. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 91.74041 percent of its residents, which is a bit below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
