Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best grades in this area, with a grade of A. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider 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 inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this nursing home so well is that it was awarded a dominant short-term care score. Indeed, short-term care turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

This nursing home's third highest area was its long-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In computing our long-term care grades, we analyze the facility's personal care services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.15498 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning to the last area, this nursing home received an acceptable nursing rating. Although this isn't as elite as a few of its other grades, this is really not a major area of concern. We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our grade in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
