Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was superb in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Only a select group of nursing homes performed better in this area. Short-term care grades are generally used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a B. Believe it or not, this ended up being this facility's least impressive category. A facility is doing something right when their poorest grade still rates higher than most other facilities. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
