Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a great nursing home overall, it also earned A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections are nearly perfect. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a resident even once per day.

In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 82.5 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is slightly less than we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
In our final category, this nursing home also received a very strong short-term care score, with a grade of A-. This completed a very impressive profile. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
