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. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received a top-shelf short-term care score. We gave them an elite grade of A- in this area. Our short-term care scores are arguably more meaningful for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next area, we gave this facility a grade of D in our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's least impressive category score. However, we would not dwell on a single bad score. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
