Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. When calculating our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third best category was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded turned out to be this facility's weakest category. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it an acceptable grade of B- for our long-term care category. In computing our long-term care scores, we size up the assistance with daily living received by a facility's patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility provided the vaccine to just 56.52174 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
