Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other achievements is its dominant short-term care grade. It received one of our most impressive grades in that category, with a grade of A. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received an impressive long-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.319725 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The final category we graded was nursing. In that area, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. This proved to be this facility's weakest category. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
