Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
This nursing home also excelled in nursing, where it earned an B. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Our nursing grade is largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care. This facility was given a grade of B- in this category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.196785 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
