Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also performed well in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Very few places fared this well in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not 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.

This nursing home also was strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Few facilities fared better in this area.

This nursing home vaccinated 94.047615 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It performed better than most nursing homes in this category. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
The next area we graded was nursing, where this facility was given a grade of B. This actually was this nursing home's least impressive area. A facility could be doing a lot worse when it's weakest grade still beats out most facilities. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents even once per day.
