Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to emphasize that this facility has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety.

Short-term Care Quality
This high end facility also dominated in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A+. Only a small group of nursing homes performed better in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

The final category we scored was nursing, where this facility was given an A. This rounded out an elite report card. Few nursing homes received an A- or higher in all four categories. Our nursing grade is mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day.

This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients at least once a day.
