Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so well is that it received a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, short-term care turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A-. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is often a useful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a favorable long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 93.9726 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The next category we analyzed is nursing. This facility was given a strong nursing grade this year, with a grade of B-. Even though this is not as dominant as some of its other scores, this is still an acceptable rating in this area. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
