Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than its overall score. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in that category. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.4709 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the senior population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

In forming our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
The last area we assessed was nursing, which turned out to be this facility's weakest area. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is clearly very disappointing.

This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades.
