Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, this facility earned a grade of B+ for its inspections rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings are not something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area with a score of B+. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis.

This nursing home vaccinated 96.414345 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
