Registered Staff Hours
On top of being an elite nursing home overall, this facility also performed well in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Very few facilities performed this well in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Unfortunately, it does not look like we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. The nursing score assesses quite a few components, but the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final area, this facility also performed well in the long-term care category. We awarded it a grade of A in that category. This topped off truly elite report card. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. One of the data points we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
