Registered Staff Hours
On top of being an elite facility overall, this facility also performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few nursing homes performed this well in this category. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
To add to its top-shelf performance in other areas, we gave this facility a grade of A for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a resident even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was long-term care. In this area, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. Our long-term care grades are more critical for residents requiring more traditional assistance associated with personal care. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated just 55 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
