Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. 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. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
In addition, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a score of B. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 92.961876 percent of its residents. This is slightly lower than we expected but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. Nevertheless, even its worst category would actually be a strength for many nursing homes. We awarded it a strong grade of B for short-term care. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 4.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
