Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's more respectable category grades came in the area of short-term care. This turned out to be its second most respectable category. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is not a bad grade in this category. Our long-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of nursing services. This means a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 99.63899 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
