Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility has received nearly flawless government inspections recently. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was elite in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A. Only a select group of nursing homes received a better grade in this category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.31973 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care. Contributing to its first-rate profile, this facility also excelled in that area. In fact, we gave it a of A- for the area. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
In the last category, this nursing home also was given an impressive nursing rating, with an A-. This topped off a straight A profile. There are numerous subcategories within this grade. Most of the factors relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
