Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing rating assesses a handful of subcategories, but the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality
The third highest area we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to create a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in that category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for folks requiring more traditional assistance related to personal care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
