Registered Staff Hours
This facility's best category grade came in the area of health inspections. In that category, we awarded this facility a B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Inspection scores are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to point out that this nursing home was awarded strong short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the facility's second best grade. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next best area ended up being long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are critical for patients needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.5098 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home received a C in nursing, which we consider to be an acceptable rating. Nursing grades are tied to nurse staffing levels. This facility averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
