Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also received top notch government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best grades in that category, with an A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not 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.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed is short-term care. We gave them one of our strongest grades in that category, with a grade of A-. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more critical for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth category, this nursing home did not perform well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category, this was obviously this nursing home's poorest grade. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at 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 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
