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 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given an impressive long-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 95.68345 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The last category we looked at was nursing. We gave this nursing home a B- in that category. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the level of skill of those nurses. This facility averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient even once per day.
