Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's above average category scores came in the area of short-term care. We gave them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a score of B+. Short-term care ratings are important for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

This nursing home was given an impressive long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 95.84245 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The next category we graded is nursing. In that area, we gave this nursing home a decent grade of B-. This proved to be this facility's least impressive category. Nursing scores are largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
