Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong facility overall, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities fared better in that category. Inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Another one of this facility's quality category grades came in the area of long-term care. We gave them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a score of B+. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average.

This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next area, this facility received a C in short-term care, which we consider to be a decent score. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home.
