Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also earned A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor dings aren't the end of the world.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Nursing grades are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a patient more frequently.

In determining our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is often a meaningful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home also performed admirably in our long-term care category. In fact, we gave it a B+ for that area. This topped off a very impressive report card. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.47369 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
