Registered Staff Hours
We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in the area of nursing, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This facility provided 0.3 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our better scores. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy.

This facility received a good score in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.47716 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
