Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in this area, with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. Our short-term care scores are meaningful for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.843414 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This nursing home's worst category was nursing, which is the final area we analyzed. For this category, we gave this nursing home a D.

This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores.
