Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this place an A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among its many high-end grades, this nursing home was awarded an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, it received a score of A- in that area. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.85965 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

The last area we scored is short-term care, in which this facility was awarded a B. Believe it or not, this proved to be this facility's least impressive area. A facility could be doing a lot worse when it's lowest score still beats out most facilities. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.
