Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded it an impressive grade of A- in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. Short-term care scores are important for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility 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. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing score includes quite a few subcategories, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving a resident more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our next category, this facility received a B- in long-term care, which is generally an acceptable score. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable total. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
