Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important area. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B+. It performed more favorably than most nursing homes in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.81447 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Nursing scores are primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this nursing home received a B. While this wound up being its poorest category score, this is still a strong rating. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
