Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great facility overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections are nearly flawless. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility really excelled in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Very few nursing homes performed more favorably in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.11539 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the third area, this nursing home also earned a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. Our short-term care grades are arguably most critical for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The next area we scored ended up being this nursing home's worst category. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of B- in our nursing category. Our nursing grade considers a number of subcategories. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
