Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this facility also received an A+ inspection score. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B+. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave them one of our more positive grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B+. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the senior population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final area, this facility was awarded a very strong short-term care grade. Although this wasn't nearly as strong as several of its other category grades, this is nevertheless one of our stronger grades we offer. In our short-term care category, we strive to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
