Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. 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 deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have deficiency data for this nursing home. Without deficiency related data for this facility, it was a challenge to fully evaluate it in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its impressive profile, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care area. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in the area. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility 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 patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our nursing rating features numerous factors. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated was long-term care. We gave this nursing home one of our better grades in that category, with a B. Although this is not as favorable as a few of its other scores, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
