Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. The nursing rating weighs a handful of subcategories, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning our third category, this facility was awarded a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in this area. With our short-term care category, we seek to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's level 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 every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C. Although this proved to be its least impressive category grade, this is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
