Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also earned first-rate inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best scores in that area, with an A+. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its 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.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's impressive category scores came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our more positive grades in that category, with a grade of B. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.13043 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this area. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Turning to our final category, this nursing home was given a grade of C for nursing, which we consider to be an acceptable score. The nursing rating analyzes a handful of subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
