Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency data for this facility. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without having complete deficiency related data, it is difficult to fully evaluate it in the inspections category.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this facility an B+. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also received a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care. We awarded this facility a decent score in this area, with a B-. Even though this was not as dominant as a few of its other scores, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.36066 percent of its residents. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
