Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being an elite nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Few facilities fared as well in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Unfortunately, we were not able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility is also above average in the area of long-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It outpaced most facilities in this category. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 82.80254 percent of its residents against pneumonia. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing grade considers a number of factors. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is nursing, proved to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this facility a D in that area. This was one of just a couple of dings in an otherwise strong report card. Our short-term care grades are likely more important for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
