Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality facility overall, this nursing home especially excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A. Not many facilities performed better in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality

Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. When computing our nursing grades, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home was given an acceptable short-term care grade of B-. Our short-term care grades are arguably most meaningful for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
