Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it earned a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections is its best category grade. In this category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Nursing grades are mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next area, this nursing home also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. Our short-term care scores are probably more meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is long-term care. This facility received a better than average long-term care grade this year, with a B-. Although this was not nearly as dominant as several of its other category grades, this is still a decent score for this category. In our long-term care grade, we analyze the sheer volume of care provided by a facility, along with a series of quality metrics. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 87.5 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
