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.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given its next best category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category, which is a decent score. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98.86621 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final category we looked at was nursing. This nursing home received a grade of B- for this category. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
