This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines.

This facility was given an impressive long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.5935 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping 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.

This score is typically a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
