Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a score of A+ for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 83.146065 percent of its residents, which is a few points below what we were hoping for. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was short-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B-. This is this facility's worst area. This is still not a poor grade. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
