Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it an A in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. The nursing grade weighs numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed was long-term care. This facility received an impressive long-term care score, with a grade of B+ in this category. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 98.65471 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B-. Although this ended up being its weakest category grade, this is still not a major area of concern. Our short-term care grade is often employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
