Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this facility received an A+ inspection grade. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A- for our long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 94.181816 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy.

Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of C. This actually turned out to be this facility's worst category. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 3.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
