Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its first-rate profile, this facility also received a superb long-term care grade, with a grade of A. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.67442 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 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.

Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home was awarded a high-end short-term care score. We gave it an A- in this area, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more important for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
