Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't 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.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also received a fine short-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second strongest category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place New Hampshire in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving patients even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth category, this facility also excelled in our long-term care category. We awarded it a grade of A- for this category. This wrapped up a straight A report card. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 56.842106 percent of its patients, which is somewhat lower than we anticipated. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
