Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility also earned an A+ inspection score. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a nursing home. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was strong in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Not many nursing homes received a better grade in this area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a strong long-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In our final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. This rounded out a very impressive profile. Our nursing rating weighs many subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.4 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 the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
