Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this place excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this facility. Without the information regarding deficiencies, it ended up being difficult to grade the place in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it was awarded a strong short-term care grade. Indeed, short-term care ended up being its second most favorable category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we looked at is long-term care, where this facility was given a B- in this category. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This facility 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 a remarkably low number.
The last area we analyzed was nursing. This facility received a grade of C for the area. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of subcategories, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
