Registered Staff Hours
To pair with a strong overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspection category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and 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 safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its high-end profile, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a score of A for that area. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis.

Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population.
