Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
To add to its strong accomplishments in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A- for our short-term care rating. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our next area, this nursing home was awarded a high-end long-term care score. We awarded it a grade of B+ in this category, wrapping up one of our finer profiles. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.43977 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
