Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility also excelled in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A. Not many facilities fared better in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is long-term care. This facility received an above average long-term care grade, with a B+ in the category. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.611115 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility an acceptable grade of C. This is this facility's weakest category. Our short-term care ratings are probably more meaningful for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes 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 last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
