Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent nursing grade. We awarded them a grade of A in this area. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are with residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Turning to another one of this place's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility received a strong long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B+. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.60789 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave this facility one of our more favorable grades in this area, with a grade of B. This facility ended up being relatively strong in all areas we analyzed. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
