Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key 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 are quite insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
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. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of skill of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 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 facility 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.

In computing our long-term care grades, we look at the assistance with daily living offered to the facility's residents.

This facility administered the vaccine to 99.29578 percent of its patients. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
