Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Few facilities fared as well in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. We were not able to track down deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given an impressive long-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this area. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our more positive grades in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B. Our short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
The last category we assessed is nursing. We gave this facility a solid score in that category, with a grade of B-. Although this isn't as strong as many of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless not a terrible score. There are a number of subcategories included in this grade. Many of the subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
