In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Among its many elite scores, this facility was awarded an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in that area. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

In the last category we scored, this facility was given an impressive grade grade of A- in our long-term care category. With this grade, the facility wrapped up a straight A report card. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 91.84783 percent of its residents. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
