Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best grades in that area, with an A+. 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 area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. It does not look like we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded high grades in the area of long-term care as well. As a result, we awarded it one of our highest grades in that area with a score of A-. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 89.70588 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing rating is mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is short-term care, which is the last area we scored. It received a lowly F in this area. Despite a few excellent scores in other categories, this score is nevertheless somewhat concerning so we felt obligated to make a note of it. With our short-term care score, we try to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this place was below average in multiple staffing metrics we looked at. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
