Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
To complement its dominant accomplishments in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of A for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity 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 residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
In our final area, this facility also received an impressive short-term care score, with a grade of B+. This wrapped up a first-rate profile. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
