Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no 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 health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded a strong long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this area. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
