Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that area, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in that area. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
