Registered Staff Hours
This facility's nursing rating is more impressive than its overall score. With a strong performance in this category, it earned one of our better scores in nursing with a B+. The nursing rating includes several factors, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to note that this facility received impressive short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our better scores in this category, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the facility's second strongest grade. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher scores. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Finally, we found that this facility has received favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded it a B- in this area. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
