Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent nursing score. We awarded them an A in this area. There are a number of subcategories within this category. Many of these factors are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
This facility also performed well in inspections, which is based on its government inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category was its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was short-term care. This facility was given a C in this category. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
