Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall rating, this facility fared even better in our inspections category which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best grades. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
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. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category turned out to be its short-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In our short-term care rating, we seek to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in long-term care, which is a respectable rating. In calculating our long-term care scores, we size up the assistance with daily living offered to a nursing home's patients. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this facility administered the vaccine to just 72.34042 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
