Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong nursing home overall, it also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections are virtually perfect. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. In determining our nursing grades, we factor in both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we looked at was short-term care. Adding to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also performed well in this area. In fact, it received a of A in that area. Our short-term care grades are important for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
In our final category, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for its long-term care rating. This finished off a very strong report card. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 95.87302 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
