Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of nursing. We awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 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 facility 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 addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality
The third highest area we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 3.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final area, this facility received a decent long-term care score of C. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
