Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned an inspection grade which is stronger than its overall rating. Inspection scores are associated with a nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded this nursing home a very solid grade of B+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few subcategories, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 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.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third most favorable area turned out to be long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99.68944 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our last category, this nursing home was given a C for short-term care, which we consider to be a decent score. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
