Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for inspections. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other accomplishments is its first-rate long-term care score. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of A-. For patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 93.24324 percent of its residents, which is slightly less than we were hoping for. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Nursing grades are largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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
The final category we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this facility an acceptable grade in that category, with a grade of B-. Even though this was not as favorable as several of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Our short-term care scores are presumably most meaningful for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
