Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually flawless. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient 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 received a high-end long-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this nursing home's second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nursing grades are primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 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 facility 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.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home received a very good nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of B. While this isn't quite as dominant as several of its other scores, this remains one of the better scores in that area. In our short-term care rating, we strive to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
