Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A+ in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so favorably is that it received a dominant long-term care score. Indeed, long-term care is its second most favorable category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 96.938774 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score.

This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Our last area is short-term care, where we awarded this facility a grade of C in that category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is often a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final item we looked at 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 patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
