Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. The nursing grade analyzes a handful of components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given an impressive short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B+. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed ended up being this facility's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of C for our long-term care category. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.75 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
