Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually perfect. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its fine assessment, this facility also was awarded a strong long-term care score, with a score of A. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. It does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Turning to the final category, this facility was given an acceptable nursing score. Although this wasn't as good as a few of its other category grades, this is truly nothing to be ashamed of. The nursing rating weighs many subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
