Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually perfect. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's quality category grades came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our more positive grades in that category, with a grade of B+. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to residents as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a resident even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was this facility's poorest category. However, even in its worst category we still gave it an acceptable grade of C for our short-term care category. Our short-term care ratings are important for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home 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. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
