Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A+ for its long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.28571 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it a decent grade of C for short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most meaningful for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
