Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received first-rate government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this nursing home also earned a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. With our short-term care category, we seek to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

This nursing home's next best area was long-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. Long-term care scores are based on the nursing home's volume of nursing care. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 95.56314 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home was awarded a B- for nursing, which we consider to be a respectable grade. The nursing category assesses many data points, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
