Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received an A-. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Adding to its impressive profile, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with a score of B+.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our more favorable grades in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B. Our short-term care grade is typically used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed is long-term care, in which this facility received a B. This nursing home didn't end up having any weak areas. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
