Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.75561 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores.
