Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to note that this nursing home excelled in our nursing rating. We gave them an A+ in this area. Our nursing rating consists of a handful of components, however, the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given high marks in the area of short-term care. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. In our short-term care category, we seek to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a strong long-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's third best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 89.84375 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Lastly, this facility has earned near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. This is one of the few nursing homes in the state to receive an A- or better in every category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
