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 0.4 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
On the list of its many dominant scores, this nursing home was given an excellent short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that area. 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. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.72131 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Another impressive feature for this place is its inspection grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-, wrapping up its straight A performance. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
