Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it earned one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility really excelled in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Only a select group of facilities performed better in this category. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we assessed is long-term care. This facility was given a favorable long-term care score, with a B+ in the area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 95.726494 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Moving on to the final area, this nursing home was given an acceptable nursing grade. Although this is not nearly as impressive as several of its other category grades, this is still not a terrible score. In determining our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
