Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A- in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B+. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.3 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 84.745766 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we expected but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Our next category is short-term care, in which we gave this facility a B- in this area. In our short-term care category, we try to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
