Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home excelled in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed this well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor dings aren't the end of the world.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. The nursing rating analyzes several subcategories, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded an impressive short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a score of B+. In forming our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our last area, this nursing home was given a respectable long-term care score. Even though this is not nearly as impressive as many of its other scores, this is truly nothing to be ashamed of. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
