Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. It does not appear that we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of nursing. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. There are many criteria included in this area. Most of these subcategories reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was awarded a superb grade of A- in our long-term care area. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 75.55556 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home was given a very good short-term care score this year, with a B-. Even though this isn't as good as some of its other grades, this is still a decent grade for this category. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
