Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility excelled in our inspections category, which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing 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 dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
To complement its impressive assessments in other areas, we awarded this facility a score of A for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home received a grade of C. Although this ended up being its worst category grade, this is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. In determining our long-term care ratings, we look at the personal care offered to a nursing home's patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.0276 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint.
