Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A. Our nursing grade weighs a handful of subcategories, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
In addition, this facility earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the third category, this facility also received a score of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 93.71257 percent of its residents. This is slightly lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a C. This turned out to be this facility's worst category. This is still not a terrible score. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 3.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
