Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem 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.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.305084 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This ended up being this facility's worst category. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
