Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, this place also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given a favorable long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.85387 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. With our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
