Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in nursing, where it received an A. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Adding to its impressive profile, this nursing home also performed at a high level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave them one of our more positive grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B+. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is short-term care. This facility was given a better than average short-term care rating in our assessment, with a B. This facility really didn't have any weak areas. Short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms 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 information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
