Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other accomplishments is its dominant short-term care grade. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of A-. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we rated ended up being this facility's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of C for our long-term care category. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
