Registered Staff Hours
On top of being an elite facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes performed this well in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
To complement its top-shelf achievements in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of A for its short-term care score. Short-term care scores are important for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last area we analyzed is nursing, where this facility was awarded a grade of A-. This completed a very impressive report card. Few nursing homes earned an A- or better in each of our categories. When determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. 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.
