Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well overall, this nursing home received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Nursing ratings are largely based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a very strong short-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being this facility's third strongest category score. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
In the last category we graded, this nursing home was awarded an impressive grade grade of A- in our long-term care category. With this score, the nursing home completed a straight A report card. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
