Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this very important area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was dominant in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount 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 98.47909 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

The purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
In the final category we assessed, this facility was given an impressive grade grade of B+ in our nursing category. With this score, the facility topped off a very impressive report card. Our nursing category includes quite a few subcategories, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
