Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were nearly perfect. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose 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
This facility fared well in our long-term care category. As a result, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area, which happens to be one of our most favorable grades. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.46809 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category ended up being short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. With our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
The final category we scored is nursing. In this category, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. This actually was this nursing home's weakest category. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this area.
