Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility has received near flawless inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government 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
Adding to its first-rate profile, this facility also received a superb short-term care score, with a grade of A. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded a favorable long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B+. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Switching gears to the final area, this nursing home received a decent nursing rating. While this isn't quite as impressive as several of its other grades, this is truly not a major area of concern. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
