Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its strong overall score, we gave this place an A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. It does not appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this facility an A+. Our nursing rating consists of many datapoints, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 nation 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 by employing a policy of moving patients at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning the page to our next area, this high end facility also was superb in the category of long-term care. In this category, it received a A+. Very few nursing homes fared better in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 94.41341 percent of its residents. This is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. 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 an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The fourth area we assessed was short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of A-. This finished off an elite report card. Few facilities earned an A- or better in all four categories. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
