Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving an elite overall score, this facility also received an A+ inspection grade. This score is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also performed well in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A. Not many facilities fared better in this category. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 64.67236 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at proved to be this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even its lowest point would likely be a highlight for many facilities. In fact, we gave it a favorable grade of B in short-term care. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
