Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this category. Short-term care ratings are vital for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

The last category we analyzed is long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. Naturally, this grade hurt the facility's overall profile to some degree. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 96.12403 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
