Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a impressive short-term care grade. This actually ended up being this nursing home's third best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this nursing home received a high-end long-term care grade. Even though this is not as good as several of its other category grades, this remains one of the more impressive grades a facility can receive. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 70.114944 percent of its residents. This is a bit less than we were hoping for. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
