Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Another strong feature for this facility was inspections, where it earned a grade of B in that area. It outperformed most facilities in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home was given an above average long-term care grade, with a B in this category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 97.92285 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. This is not a bad grade in this category. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
