Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also received an elite short-term care grade. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an A-. Short-term care ratings are important for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
This facility also excelled in inspections. We gave it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. This is one of the few facilities with an overall score in this range which earned multiple category grades this high. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in that category. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 62.962963 percent of its patients. This is several points less than the national average. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
