Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received an impressive long-term care rating this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B+. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.605576 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the area of short-term care. We gave them one of our more positive scores in that category, with a grade of B+. With our short-term care rating, we seek to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Turning to another of this nursing home's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be one of its best grades. In that area, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor dings aren't something to panic about.
The next area we scored was nursing. We gave it a grade of B- in that area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. There are a variety of subcategories included in this area. Many of these factors reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
