Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were nearly perfect. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. We weren't able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received an A+ for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home also excelled in the short-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ for this area. This finalized a very strong profile. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
