Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections ended up being its best category. In that category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was dominant in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Very few facilities received a better grade in this area. With our short-term care score, we strive to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 73.91304 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The fourth category we rated is nursing, where this nursing home received an A-. This rounded out a very favorable profile. Few facilities received an A- or better in all four categories. Our nursing grade assesses a handful of subcategories, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.5 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 typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
