Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned a very impressive grade in inspections. In fact, inspections ended up being its best category. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was strong in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Not many nursing homes fared better in this area. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 81.39535 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term care grades are often used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals.

The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
