Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent long-term care rating. We gave them an A in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
We also want to emphasize this nursing home's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored proved to be this facility's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it an acceptable grade of C in our short-term care category. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
