Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. The nursing rating analyzes a handful of components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received an elite grade of A in our short-term care category. Our short-term care grades are probably more meaningful for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is long-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B-. Even though this proved to be its lowest category rating, this is nevertheless not a major area of concern. In the area of long-term care, we assess the amount of services provided by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 90.73359 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
